The term B-side is taken from the world of music. The song conventionally placed on the A-side of the single record was the song the producer hoped would become a hit, while the song placed on the B-side carried fewer aspirations. However, many times the B-side turned out to be more successful than the A-side.
In this project, the B-side is neither the central nor the marginal. It lacks both the splendor of the central and the otherness of the marginal. Its beauty lies in its simplicity and banality.
The pictures in this project are, in a way, pictures of ‘nowhere’. While pictures of ‘somewhere’ are characterized by depth, hierarchy, orientation, pictures of ‘nowhere’ are not. The orientation in these pictures of nowhere is not the result of navigation, but of experimentation, an experimentation that can be naïve, banal, and amusing.
The pictures do not aim to choose between original and representation, between principal and trivial. B-side, be side or beside? All of them and none of them. Like the two sides of a coin, the pictures offer a B-side, and other side which isn’t judgmental, and which can be replaced by an A-side at any given moment and still remain a B-side.
