Seba Kurtis ~ Drowned and other Stories
For more people than ever before, home is a moveable concept, stuck somewhere between a dream and a memory. It is this feeling that Seba Kurtis, a young Argentinean photographer, brings to his work on immigrants, negotiating the treacherous seas between Africa and Europe or traversing the lawless borders between Mexico and the United States. His unorthodox, multi-layered photographs are a product of his own shifting experience as a stateless individual. Kurtis uses experimental techniques and operates at the boundaries of image-making to assert both the unreliability of representation and the transient nature of experience.
