Scene of silence I

The photograph is a part of the project called ‘Scene of silence’. The subject refers to a characteristic void which accompanies us while we watch a silent movie. Certainly, when looking at a photograph we cannot physically retrace any sounds, which quite often were an inseparable part of the captured moment. In this case, natural phenomena appear here muted and motionless, presenting only their visual potential. In a nutshell, photography is a still image. However, due to our imagination and previous experiences, these pictures can provide an external stimulus to senses and belie motion and indeed familiar sounds. As somebody said: ‘photography is like the art of frozen time… the ability to store emotions and feelings within a frame’.
