            Abstract

            Regular photographical imaging records volumetric planes with smooth surfaces. The reason is the camera’s deficiency in perceiving and documenting the visual richness of ‘persuasive’ details in life. HDR imaging methods used in creating this artwork series titled Aura helped making invisible organism-like textures emerge and point to the notions of decay and symbiosis. One of the main objectives of this series of artworks is to facilitate the emergence of the experiential visual complexity between the animate and inanimate that is otherwise not possible to record. The latent aura of textural presences around us is not always noticeable easily since we tend to consume things too fast. With the rich textures achieved after high-dynamic-range-imaging (HDRI) procedures, a new symbiotic painterly visual relationship between biological (humans) and non-biological (space) was intended. In addition, the paper will focus on photography rather as a tool of personal world making, instead of photography as witnessing. During the process of unfolding this practice; notions of superimposition, palimpsest, painting vs. photography, truth, photography as an apparatus to provoke defamiliarisation will be covered. The final aim is to confirm photography as a visual language that enriches and transforms human perception.
