Empty by Stefan Hristov Marinov

If there was something non-empty (asunyam),
there would be something that is empty.
If there was anything that is non-empty
how could it have something that is empty


 The photograph project Empty is based on the concept of the internal perception of emptiness. According to a large part of the Eastern teachings, namely the emptiness of the consciousness is it highest form of existence. This definition is the basis of this project. But of course, it does not understand the lack of intellectual sense, but covers the overcoming of individual understanding of it.
Based on this belief, I started continuously to look for the provoking such feeling objects in our environment.
Thus Empty turned in an attempt for searching and representation of the emptiness, which, in fact, we can find everywhere around us. As during the winter in the parks, as well in the summer in the most animated places. I start working with the concept and the implementation of Empty during last winter, when I have been watching many gray and empty landscapes. They have strengthened my interest and led me search this same emptiness and in the other half of the year and to would like to share it. I was looking for such objects, which at first glance seem desert and empty, and after some observation led us to pass into, namely, this state of emptiness.
The aim of the project is to show their “beautiful emptiness” and to evoke its viewers the perception of emptiness, such as anyone can feel it for itself.
Every photograph of the project deals with a particular object and accordingly - part of the "perfect emptiness” and has its second part, inseparable from it. Thus, I try to show the emptiness in completely different   situations, seasons and moods.
With the photographic project Empty, I throughout to acknowledge the beauty of the perception of “Emptiness” and wake up at his audience the question: “Is it possible, this to be the most “Complete” human state?”

“The emptiness is not an independent entity and is a feature of the form that created it”

Alejandro Guijarro

Alejandro Guijarro is an artist based in London and Madrid who works primarily in photography. He graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010 with a MA in fine art.

His work examines spatial relations in photographic representation, exploring what photography is still allowed and able to do. He makes contradictory and paradoxical images, where the boundaries of the photographic image break down. The images imply a tension that goes back and forth between what can be seen and what can be understood, creating a simultaneous sense of appearance and disappearance. By undermining our recognizable modes of perception, he questions the solidity and the authority of the photographic image and its ability to refer to reality and to truth.
