”leaving and staying”

2005-2009. digital prints 64.5 cm x 100 cm.
In this series of photographs taken through the window of a moving vehicle – a train or an automobile – I show moments of a journey in Finland, Italy and Switzerland. While I am moving the things that remain closer to the objective are blurry and the things further away are more in focus. Sometimes I stand still and all comes in focus. These images to me are more like digital paintings and an effort to seeze a moment where the picture of the places we pass through will transform to a real perception of a memory.
