” Over the past 10 years, I have pursued a little-known genre called slitscan photography. Far from being just a visual curiosity, it has become a substantial tool for the exploration of themes meaningful to me. I have found slitscan photography to be an excellent vehicle for ideas central to my work– ideas about time and our place in its continuum. It is important to understand that these images are not manipulated. This is the way my camera sees the world. ” – Ansen Seale

” I make the clothes the morning of the shoot, so the meat doesn’t rot. In Bahia, I froze it beforehand, so it wouldn’t get smelly, because it’s really hot. It’s quite domestic, reallyâ€”I have to buy meat, clean up, sew. For this series, I got the fabrics in local markets, and the meat, too. I try to accentuate each woman’s skin tone and expression with the clothes; I take Polaroids of them when I first meet them, then I work from those. ” – Pinar Yolacan
