(Ir)replaceable

21_1naslov

Intimacy and unfamiliar are something immaterial. How can that be represented in the medium of photography, if the obvious signs such as a kiss, a smile, a hug, or a cuddle are excluded?

To test this, intimate (heterosexual and homosexual) couples have been photographed, and then each member of couple has been photographed with a complete stranger, in the same conditions, in the same defined positions as previous. The only thing that was variable was one member of the pair, once it was the real intimate partner  and other time it was an unknown person.

To recognize which models are couple and which are stranger, it is necessary to have a more devoted, interested perception than an every-day ‘scanning’ view, because the signs from which they can be recognized lie in subtle details.
