CloudladderAbout this photograph
Sarolta Ban, born in Budapest in 1982, started her career as a jewellery designer. She discovered digital photography with its endless post-production opportunities for manipulation. In reference to her work method, she explains: ?I don?t think I am a photographer, I just like creating images.? The time required to produce a final work varies between several hours and several days. For this artist, who is as interested in representation as in the technique to achieve it, it is not unusual to use up to a hundred or so layers for a single photograph.Her photograph :Saltora Ban likes to create unexpected images. Furthermore, she selects the motifs which will aid her iconography on a daily basis. By combining and superimposing the postproduction layers, Sarolta Ban makes incongruous images. Narrative predominates in these photographs which have a story to tell. Saltora Ban draws us into a world where the fantastic, the oneiric and the incongruous co-exist. The association of motifs, some being antagonistic, creates a higher reality. Dreams and the fantastical are expressed in full measure. No explanation is required and the photographer devises visual poems, almost inventories in the style of Prévert.Read more Read less
