The pictures in this series are bleached through a special method in photographic processing. Reduced in color and detail, driven to graphic qualities they emphasize timelessness and all the things that are ever valid.
The first impressions are: bleak, barren, dazzling, low horizons, surrounded by mountain-chains and crests.The vastness of this living environment, that seems to be so narrow at the first glimpse is captured and conveyed by the images panoramic format.Only those who notice the especially small window in the separated part of the house, a refuge for those threatened by blood feud, are aware of the hidden threat. The impression of the ancient, archaic and timeless prevails. However, even here present age has left its traces.
