We all may share the same sensual image of the environment. What we perceive, feel, and
reflect upon, however, may be as unique as every single person… ~ Charlotte Thoemmes

Natural environments and urbanized areas inspire my images, in which I present questions that range from identity to mortality. In my imagery, I attempt to explore places where a dialog emerges between the inner world of people and the environment . There I intuitively create my dream-like visions, make the unseen apparent, paint with light and shadow. In my images I’m not trying to frame my own subjective construction of reality, but rather try to animate the recipient to question their own perception. I want my images to provide a space where the viewers can project their own associations.

Experimental working techniques, either in-camera or in the darkroom often lead me to push the boundaries of photography. I create images with multiple exposures and selective haziness to capture feelings of loss and transformation through time. By painting on the light-sensitive paper or directly on the negative I create additional layers that were unseen by my eye, but felt emotionally. Photography provides possibilities to capture memories of the physical and the emotional state of people and places.

De Barros questioned the amateur pictorial and academic tradition in Brazilian photography, which emphasised classical rules of composition. His experiments investigated the limits of the traditional photographic process, intervening directly in the negative, making multiple exposures of the same film, superpositions, montages and cuttings of the amplifications that questioned the rectangular format of photography. His output came close to formal researches in which his main interest was the rhythms and planes that often project into the space beyond the frame. In the following year, he held the memorable exhibition Fotoformas [Photoforms] in which he completely merged engraving, drawing and photography to inaugurate abstraction in Brazilian photography.

Okun records architectural structures through multiple exposures. Using a large-format Hasselblad camera, she takes a picture, then advances the film only slightly to achieve a layering effect. A single image may comprise six such overlays, which might then become part of a triptych. Okun’s background is in film, so it follows that the spatial information unfolds sequentially; the images are fragmented and superimposed, causing unexpectedly lyrical interpretations of buildings and space to emerge.

Yet for all their abstraction, what is also compelling about these images is their essentially traditional approach to the documentation of architecture. These days, architectural photography tends to consider circumstances beyond the built form:- climate, use, landscape, and human accessibility — to position the building in its social and environmental context. Okun, however, sticks to the structural facts; her images read as formal records and revelations of space, form, color, and light.
