Free Particles, 2008-2009, 2016-2017
digital photography, broken lens
Free “particles” dance in fading daylight of a city. These light particles are optical aberrations of broken and departed lens, which defract in different colors, shapes and directions. Although they are generated my city lamps, street traffic and accident objects, they seem to have a life of their own. They do not exist in the real world, but inhabit the imaginary space of the camera.These free particles show unobvisous dynamics and color in some areas in my hometown - Sofia. Although in history of optics the aberrations were unwanted defect of lens and an obsticle to overcome, in the „Free Particles” series they are expressive mean of unperfect, but free world of light.
