These photographies are only fragment of a long time project called "disturbation". The final collection will be presented as a book and exhibition in the first half of 2012.
'In the recent series I retell in pictures several stories that should never be seen. The photos capture different people during various intimate situations in a "caught in the act" way. It made us unwanted spectators of strange rituals and obscure moments as simply everyday routine. Because it is. But "disturbation" is not artless opening of locked or semi-closed doors to children's rooms, toilets or massage salons. Forget voyeurism and fetishism cliché. These photos aspire to reflect not just actual social issues. Politics, pop icons, pope... Therefore to speak only about intimacy as an act is deficient. It is also about what people hide inside themselves. In their inner space full of opinions, attitudes, thoughts, dreams and taste.
Although most of the visual stories are mockumentary or reconstruction of true and sometimes false memories, the rest remains truly authentic.' Dany Peschl
