The series questions the ‘void’ left by the people who have died. Among many other remainders, what remains to survivors are the photographs and the void that the deceased create.
In some cultures and geographies, to install a photograph of the deceased on the tombstone by using a special technique indicates that one of the areas of the usage of the photograph is tombstone photography. The photos put on the tombstone are worthy images of the deceased.
These images ensure that the face of the deceased is remembered by those who know him/her and that it does not get confused with other faces. And for those who do not know him/her, it is a way to get acquainted with. Therefore, this carefully selected image is chosen by scanning the albums, while the person was still alive, and describes the best…… of him/her.
If this selected photo is in black and white, there is always a way to “make it beautiful”: to color the photo later.
In the series which has the traces/effects of coloring on black and white photographs, a silhouette represents the void remained by the deceased instead of the face who poses to the lens while taking the photo. Thus, it is emphasized that the new image of the person (now determined by his absence at this time and place) is the ‘void’. The existence of the deceased is hidden in this void which on its own is hidden in a new infinite place that colored later.
