‘The Inside is a Mystery’ is a homage brought to Man Ray’s work. Man Ray's solarisation technique was a revolutionary development in the history of photography. The technique involves partially reversing the tones of a photographic image, creating a unique and surreal effect.
Inside each of us lies a world of thoughts, emotions, and experiences that are often hidden from the outside world. But with the use of solarisation, we can capture the inner workings of the human mind in a truly unique way.
In each solarised image, one can observe the interplay between light and shadow, between positive and negative space. The solarisation process amplifies the emotion, creating a heightened sense of drama and intensity that draws us in as if we are witnessing something private and personal.
These images are not just about capturing our internal world. They are also a reflection of the human condition, of the struggles and triumphs that we all face in our daily lives. The abstract quality of the images adds a sense of depth and richness to the emotion, allowing us to see beyond the surface and into the heart of the matter.
