AmericaB&WCityMysterious people by Amy Sacka

“Mysterious people” explores the tension in our curious reality. The moments when we find ourselves looking and looking again, maybe even asking, “Did that just happen?” “What did I just see?” Or maybe even, “Did the camera see something that I didn't?"

“Mysterious people” explores the tension in our curious reality. The moments when we find ourselves looking and looking again, maybe even asking, “Did that just happen?” “What did I just see?” Or maybe even, “Did the camera see something that I didn’t?”

I enjoy observing those blurry lines, exploring the relationship between people and mystery, and how they simultaneously influence each other. What sort of peculiarities do chance and fate bring to people, to a scene, to expose the beautiful oddness of our existence. Conversely, what unique expressions, personality traits and quirks of behavior do we as humans contribute to the mystery of our experience. Finally, what role does the camera and the photographer play in ensuring these moments don’t escape us. A second sooner or a second later, an inch to the right or to the left, the scene might look quite normal to the passerby. Does the photographer have a hand in the mystery by knowing to press the button at the exact right time?

In this work, I enjoy playing with the criss-cross of curiosity and beauty – the discovery of the unique windows into our experience. To me, these playful, peculiar scenes convey an even more accurate depiction of how baffling and beautiful our existence truly is.
