Constructed Landscapes A photography project by Dafna Talmor

The mirror is, after all, a utopia, since it is a placeless place. In the mirror, I see myself there where I am not, in an unreal, virtual space that opens up behind the surface.
– Michel Foucault, Of Other Spaces (1967)

“Constructed Landscapes is an ongoing project, stems from my personal archive of photographs initially Shot as mere keepsakes across different locations that include Venezuela, Israel, the US and UK. Produced by collaging medium format color negatives, the process relies on experimentation, involving several incisions and configurations before a right match is achieved.

Transformed through the act of slicing and splicing, the resulting images are staged landscapes, a conflation combining the ‘real’ and the imaginary. Through this work, specific places initially loaded with personal meaning and political connotations, are transformed into a space of greater universality. Blurring place, memory and time, the work alludes to idealised and utopian spaces.” – Dafna Talmor
