Trying to visualized longing, loneliness, contentment, cyclical mood shifts, and escapism, a photographer Anna Brody perceives the social and built landscape as a medium to express.
Presented body of work is Anna’s ongoing series titled Edging, GA, which is as a documentation of a place that do not exist. Inviting one to discover the story, as an introduction we give voice to the artist herself. „Time passes slowly here, at a speed that allows for close examinations of bugs and bones and openings, and it exists only at sunrise and sunset.
Challenges are presented, obstacles overcome, hearts ache, things and people get old and die. It is of this world, but filed down to a smooth bevel, corners rounded. Though Edging is not a real place, it’s very close – more mirage than fantasy. It’s something you can really see that looks tangible from far away no matter whether you’re looking backwards or forwards, but as soon as you get close it disappears. This golden world is one of the many fictions of pages, screens and songs that are arguably all based on true stories, and they are never meant to be within reach. By the time you got there it would be dirty, you would be tired, and you still couldn’t touch your shadow or make a sunset stay.”
