Joselito Vershaeve’s personal experiences interweave black-and-white photographs of both everyday encounters and staged fictions from archives of the artist’s own work, in the process creating visual short stories of optimism and dystopia which defy conventional interpretation. It involves precious attention to the photographic craft, a unique poetic voice. The images are drawn from the artist’s ever-growing archive, selected and arranged in a rhythmic pattern that mimics the act of writing a poem or short story. The recurring motif of the bird in many forms is interspersed with images of textured rocks, the moon, and paths which lead and disappear off the page.
