Half Imagined: NFT Collection
'Half-Imagined' is a collection of multiple exposure photographs, made on 35mm film between 2006 and 2020. It focuses primarily on South African landscapes, but includes images from travels to other countries. In fact, just about all of them were made on an adventure of some sort, and as such try to evoke my fascination with – and immersion in – new environments.
These analogue photographs strive to elicit the confusion that nostalgia stirs up within us, when we recall the most beautiful experiences in our lives: jostled between the urge to return, and the knowledge that these unique moments in time and space are now gone forever.
How much of what we remember is real, and how much is imagined? The notion of a perfectly preserved recollection is surely an illusion. Made as multiple exposures on film, these surreal postcard scenes suggest a certain artistry at play in the formation of memories.
