Encounter Photobook

Encounter — Truth Construction


Encounter studies how a myth develops with and through the media photography.

How can images show or express the changeability and the fragility of myths and serve as a proof of its existence?

Starting-point of the investigation is the village Bugarach in the south of France as well as the mountain Pic de Bugarach. New Age followers believed the mountain had mystical powers, spreading to the belief that the village would be spared in the 2012 apocalypse.

In what way does the various interchanges and the interdependence of motives concerning film, photography and literature manage to have an effect on the pop-cultural construction of the myth of this village?
