Time Atlas

The series Time Atlas is based on the book with the same title, in which Niina Vatanen is overlapping and intertwining photographs from different sources playfully and poetically. Coming from old encyclopedias, personal, intimate archives, newspapers, manuals, or the vast internet imagery, the materials, when combined, create new and inventive connections between different and otherwise unrelated fields. They are organized thematically, and the association of images is based purely on formal qualities or content. The series focuses on our perception of time and explores the convolution of history, personal experiences, and visual recollection.
