Lover, by Tamara Linse

Tamara Linse has a Project (what is outstanding at these times of crisis, depression and disappointment): Project 365. Day after day, she takes a photo catching a glimpse of reality, her reality, and then she gives it away. A work of more than three month: objective, one year.

‘Photography is the practice of creating durable images by recording light or other radiations, either electronically by means of an image sensor or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film,’ the dictionary says. But this practice can be art. When?

Define ‘art’ today is much more difficult than ‘photography’ but one thing is certain: art goes beyond the artist, it has a desire for transcendence and for expressing general feelings (an almost impossible task, strenuous, which has left many people on the road).

When I see Tamara Linse’s photos (, I see a refined practice and a strange desire of questioning us. Sometimes, she takes only a detail, and forces our imagination to complete the whole picture. Other times, she takes an enormous landscape and we have to put the details, carefully, stone by stone, step by step. No people in her photos. Why? Because we are the people, who suffer or enjoy the situation and in the end, who feel: an artistic achievement? For sure.

‘Lover’ is her new work, four versions of the same collage. I would say it could be the day 366, that day where the artist must break the multicolor door (blocked and changing in its false locks) and, bold, to sit on the other side of it, slow, to turn around and to observe, as a ‘Lover’, what she/he is, what she/he would like to be.

‘To be’, I think this is the task of an artist.

‘What drives us to be’, it is my definition of art.
