i join the crystal-eyed turtle’s hand A photography project by Diane Vincent

“i join the crystal-eyed turtle’s hand” reveals the dimension beyond time.

The poetic title invites to explore further realities beyond our usual perception.
Following an age-old wise creature, we bath in iridescent, fictive landscapes. Multiple layers overlap each other, interweaving in a radiant sound carpet.

The photographs have all been created in one single exposure, without applying post composing. By manually combining diverse layers and colors during the process of photographing in a playful way, Vincent draws a parallel to the co-existence of many different realities everyone is experiencing.

Diane Vincent lives in Berlin, and works both as an artist and freelance photographer for national and international magazines and clients.
