CFCP present Vanishing Portraits as part of PhotoIreland Festival this July. An exhibition of photography taken by Jozwiak while traveling through Bulgaria alone. Feeling lonely and weary of travel he put together this collection of melancholic photographs.

“I think that this constant feeling of misery allowed me to notice things that would otherwise have escaped my attention. I became absorbed in the intensive work of documenting the subtle sphere in which the worlds of dead and alive interpenetrate.”

What attracted the author’s attention there was an untypical form of commemoration of the dead in which photography happened to play a crucial role. An in-depth research and documentation of this phenomenon led to the uncovering of some intriguing anthropological and cultural traces. Furthermore it became a starting point for the reflection on the very medium of photography seen as a carrier of timeless archetypes and symbols. The exhibition is meant to be a kind of journey report in which photos, some found scraps of newspapers and diary entries are put together to tell a story.

In his ‘Antimodern Manifesto of the Rural Flâneur: When D’Arcy and John Go For a Wander’, Professor Mike Grimshaw argues that “the antimodern rural flâneur is one who, as a product of modernity, of urban modernity, takes the position and challenge of the flâneur and wanders in and through „landscape‟; responding to „landscape‟ as if it is the modern urban imaginary. If for the modern flâneur the city became the landscape of new hope and discovery, for the antimodern flâneur the limitations of antipodean urban life were counter-posed by the possibility of a new hope and discovery in the rural landscape.”
