I believe In [2010-ongoing]

“I believe in – the act of photography

Through a process of imagination I live a parallel reality:
I believe, I desire, I exchange.

Through a collaborator who takes on the role of the photographer, I interrogate who I think I am and who my collaborator thinks I am…the meeting point is another form of representation.

I question my own ‘being’, my presence and the relationship with the image.

These images are confessions.”

– Manuel Vason

– I believe in is an ongoing project exploring ideas of religious iconography and the liminal space between the fictional and the real. Each image is a performed fantasy. –
