„The eyes and faces all turned themselves towards me, and guiding myself by them, as by a magical thread, I stepped into the room” Sylvia Plath
Glass Faces present unique, enchanting, climatic and hypnotising portraits. Bewitching with natural beauty and somewhat unreal, mysterious, silent and oozing various emotions. Faces of friends and people we have just met. Ambrotypes – positive images created on a sheet of glass using the 19th century wet collodion process – are the vital element of the project.
The ambrotype is inimitable. You may try to reproduce it, but a piece created on black glass remains unique.
Ambrotype – Ambrotos means immortal…
At the beginning of the road, we are inseparable from our parents and siblings. We are connected by blood ties, but sometimes these bonds loosen over time, and sometimes they are broken completely. We create families, we sacrifice for work and we live life „on the run”. We travel around the world. We lose ourselves in consumerism. We do not have time for our loved ones. We forget about them, we are far away. My family is in different places.
I see my mother a few times a year – mostly on holidays.
I see my sister a dozen or so times. I live a little closer to her.
Brother – I have not seen him for a long time, but maybe this will be the year that we’ll meet again.
Papa – he visits me in my dreams. He is with us, sitting in his chair. Everyone in my pictures – we’re together again like in the past.
