Seven Days with my Mother in D1′ is a series of portraits showing an alternative reality of the relationship between me and my mother. My approach has emerged from the everyday domestic situations in which we play certain roles. However, instead of the actual drama the viewer is presented with ludicrous episodes from Greco-Roman mythology with my mother as a protagonist. The tri-colour gum printing process enables me to prolong the photographic dialogue with the subject and turn it into an experience that is more intimate. The painterly qualities of the technique distance the pieces from the family snapshot aesthetics in this way bestowing the deserved attention and significance to the subject photographed.
