The Genova Bend

Actually it is not called The Genova Bend, I really don't know what is it called. I just gave it that sort of a nickname after seeing a street post installed within that place. And it gave me the conclusion that it is supposed to be a residential ground development by the presence of the aforementioned street posts, concrete pavements and roads, tall grasses that have grown on the soil of the vacant lots and some undernourished, seared trees surrounding it......

Actually it is not called The Genova Bend, i really don’t know what is it called. I just gave it that sort of a nickname after seeing a street post installed within that place. And it gave me the conclusion that it is supposed to be a residential ground development by the presence of the aforementioned street posts, concrete pavements and roads, tall grasses that have grown on the soil of the vacant lots and some undernourished, seared trees surrounding it.. And upon my estimation, I think two football fields would fit in there. But what intrigues me the most is after the decade of passing by this place commuting, it’s still uninhabited. Maybe the lack of talented real state agents is one reason, another is a common site of discovery for literally fragmented body parts of murdered persons. The site made some headlines in the local news for the past few years.

As a person who has a certain fascination for wide, unguarded and deserted places, I was attracted to the atmosphere it alludes, I just love it. And mainly for the fact that I am a claustrophobic person and this is sometimes evident on the kind of photos I take either with single or multiple exposures. It is a conscious effort to define space within in my photographs just so it is possible for me to establish a certain atmosphere and the kind of emotion that I wanted to express. Thus making “The Genova Bend” the ideal place for my shots.

In fact I made the short film of my thesis about a subconscious journey exploring the struggle of a comatose man entitled “Molokodisiac” here in 2003. It is also the location of most of my commissioned photographic works. Shown here are the photos I did for my client Pally who is a classical pianist.
