Cadiz, SpanienAbout this photograph
The places photographed by Margarita Kazanovich are often level. The settings are all without relief and have a distinct horizon. Thus split into two, one shot for the ground and the other for the sky, the landscape becomes essential. The vertical silhouettes of the humans emerge from these large horizontal surfaces. The patches of colourful clothes catch the observer?s eye which by and large becomes lost in the composition.
The photographs are carefully packaged in order to ensure their optimal protection during transport.
Margarita Kazanovich was born in 1976 in Soviet Kazakhstan. She took photographs with her grandfather’s camera from a very young age. The arrival of digital changed her conception of photography. The associated image processing techniques offered her an unlimited number of artistic opportunities. Today she lives in Hamburg and tirelessly photographs the world around her.
