Reconstruction is a photographic representation where documentation and fiction challenge their boundaries. Taken over the course of six years, while exploring the periphery of my hometown, these photographs record a fraction of reality. However they outline a transposition from real life to mythology.  Restraint of every specific mark of time and space, the viewer is encouraged to unfold his own personal narrative. A lying caryatid, a deer, a grave, a pheasant, the golden fleece and other fragments of a  “garden“ at the end of the city.
