17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Look at Me

This photo is part of my art work, which is inspired by the work of the philosopher Guy Debord «The society of The Spectacle». I thought a lot about the following questions. Is there something true (natural) left in us that is not a consequence of the society’s influence on us? What is not taught at school, is not told on TV, youtube, advertising boards of all types and sizes. Where could we see the "truth", is it possible, how should we live with the feeling that there is no truth, that it has "blurred", and in some places has completely spread out.
