Tova Katzman works in photo and video within various countries, climates, and environments. Her work often springs out of an excuse to interact with the people she encounters in new places. She grew up surrounded by water on the island of Martha’s Vineyard and currently resides in Jamaica Plain, Boston. She recently graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a BFA in photography. Today we share Tova’s series titled An Otherwise Fruitless Search.
An Otherwise Fruitless Search
While I was riding my bike down the street, there was a young girl, maybe ten years old and brimming with attitude, precariously walking near incoming traffic. As I rode past her, she stuck her pointer finger out at me.
“Be careful,” she said.
An Otherwise Fruitless Search is a translation project created by picking up on certain gestures, encounters and stories as a means for visual cues. The images can be viewed like an atlas of an unidentified place, a document of a conversation, a discovery, or what remains. Human interactions form a visual language within a search for understanding.
