Justine Varga 2010 29 Palms
Unfamiliar Works, Justine Varga.
Justine has come into a town 29 Palms and set her camera on things that only an outsider may notice. An empty pool at night with it’s surface disturbed by a slight wind, the aperture of the camera set so that it creates a quality of light that does not seem real, it is as if painted. In another an ordinary patterned brick wall has the shadow of a cat walking along the top and then disappearing to elsewhere. Both have the quietness and sort of unacquainted quality that one sometimes feels when you enter a space where you feel you may have been but cannot remember when.
