Temporal Visualisation

Kovi Konowiecki (b. 1992) began working in photography to shed light on different aspects of his identity. After studying an MA in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion, he was shortlisted for the 2016 Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize with two images taken from Bei Mir Bistu Shein, a series that explores Jewish tradition in contemporary society. His latest project, Delivering Flowers to Grandpa Jack, reflects upon the unique nature of Konowiecki’s home town, Long Beach, documenting the people and places that contribute to a sense of belonging. Paying tribute to the seemingly unextraordinary, the images call upon unspoken narratives, translating mundanity into an arena for speculation. A sense of nostalgia is broken only by the connotations of the closed doors and drawn curtains. Through creating the opportunity for interpretation, the artist questions the very definition of home, and how associations compare with reality.
