NAZAR is defined as; to direct your eyes in a particular direction. NAZAR (look) is to exercise the power of vision.
The project is a collection of more than 60 images from primary school books. It goes to recreate the contexts of these images, and ties them in a new narrative form, built upon practicing of photography as an art form rather than a technical usage.
The project is interested in the modern circulation of images digitally and how it affects its contexts and meanings. The images were digitally scanned from books, and reprinted on glossy photo print upon it’s original size. During this process the images gained new details and lost others, related to it’s quality and content.
