The waiting room
A series of 12 photographs on the subject of shaping an identity. Selecting and deselecting,
ordering and reordering, composing and decomposing. The paradox of choice - infinite options
giving birth to a perpetual feeling of being stuck in a waiting room, in endless preparation for life.
Author: Marco Grizelj and Kristian Krän are Swedish photographers who formed AORTA, their cooperative trademark, in 1996. Since then, the pair have excelled in a diverse range of photographic genres for advertising, editorial and artistic purposes. Their work is highly staged and emphasises an uncanny reality that draws you into their fantastical world. They use their unique style and lighting in combination with an extraordinary conceptual vision to create surreal and often ominous imagery.
