JACQUELINE RODITI

jacquelineroditi.com

She was born in Istanbul in 1985.

She graduated from Istanbul Bilgi University, Department of Photography and Video in 2010. In her recent works, Roditi fictionally photographs her dreams as she remembers them and presents a dream series to the audience. While her photographs embody her dreams, her dreams also isolate her from this world. Inspired by Andre Kertesz and the photographs of the 50s in her old black-and-white photographs, Roditi is a timeless artist. She creates her own story by bringing together and editing her melancholy frames. Outside of ordinary time, the artist's photographs take us on walks where familiar hours flow longer. Timeless desert, sky, lake, and road views are accompanied by intertwined bodies and moments full of compassion, living in the time of everyday life. While loneliness is present in landscapes, it disappears in sleep. She’s represented by Vision Art Platform in Istanbul.
