Product Description

“Exploring memory and the relationship between the experience of the world around us and the conscious self is what Ali is speaking about in Phantasm. The human brain fills in the gaps especially when dealing with the edges. The human unified self is a fragile construction. All our conscious experiences are most likely controlled hallucinations.” (Matthew Carson, Phantasm)
Ali Beşikçi's photography book introduces the reader to his adventure where he questions his relationship with his own practice. A selection created by the artist inspired by an obscure photograph he discovered on old film rolls, is presented with a design by Bülent Erkmen.
“I often find myself attracted to the in-between situations in the landscape of isolation and detachment in society.There is something that fascinates me about how we handle those moments of daily purgatory. I don't usually photograph people but when I do, I find myself in some ways looking for their 'ghosts'." (Ali Beşikçi)
