Augenblick , Profile : Özant Kamaci

Turkish Photographer Özant Kamaci has produced a series of photographs of planes and nature. The short but great selection included "Pause" and "Landing" from which I choose the opening of this article and the statement from the artist:
"Landing' is an exploration of the human connection to landscape and machines. The series depicts a visual interruption of the pastoral landscape. Man observes the machine in admiration and awe. The medium of photography captures the interruption on two levels: the interruption of the descending plane across the untouched pastoral landscape and the interruption of man’s admiration of the machine as more akin to the admiration of nature or creation versus a manufactured object"
