Here I were (On going project)

Large format photography

This project is self-therapy that helps me accept myself and my mental issues. Hallucinations and false memories have made me difficult to believe my existence and memories. I keep asking myself: Am I really here? Philosopher Rene Descartes said that he could prove his existence by questioning the existence of his surroundings. My way of questioning the same thing had already started with my mental issues. The way that I figured out how to prove that I did indeed exist is taking photographs with film’s never-changing materiality. And the practice with film’s materiality becomes the thing to convince my existence.
