Violated landscape on Angkor Photo Festival

Project „Violated landscape“ has been featured in Siem Riep (Cambodia) on Angkor Photo Festival within the section „The Impact Project“.

Erica McGrath reported (not only) about Violated landscape for Museé Magazine on museemagazine.com.

There is a citation from the report:

On December 3rd the Angkor Photo Festival- the longest running photography event in Southeast Asia- will be emerging for it’s 12th successful year. It’s clear why the photo festival is highly anticipated and “the highlight of the Asian arts calendar” as it works dynamically to spotlight established and emerging photographers, while also offering portfolio reviews, intensive workshops, presentations and talks.

The diversity of the Angkor Photo Festival is one of the reasons it is such a successful and brilliant event. A particularly compelling component of the festival is ‚The Impact Project’ showcase that started in 2014. The showcase “highlights individuals, groups or small organizations which are making a positive impact on social or environmental issues”. Photographers from around the world have submitted their work and take on social and environmental issues, either on a global or personal scale. Of the twenty photographers being exhibited for the ‚The Impact Project’ we’ve selected six to highlight from different parts of the world.

The Czech landscape photographer focuses on the man-made technological structures inserted into the vast countryside of the Czech Republic for his series Violated Landscape. Chadim’s photographs seem to show an alien landscape, not that of earth, with large, bulbous, sharp, and intruding structures invading serene Czech environments. The sublime images are chilling in their isolation, perhaps a premonition for what is to come if mankind continues to violate nature.

„Našel jsem je… prostupy… tam v zóně… brány do jakési jiné dimenze. Jsou viditelné pouze z určitého úhlu. Musíte se soustředit, abyste je objevili. Přestávají zde platit tradiční vztahy času a prostoru. Čas se zde zpomaluje, prostor se křiví a zrcadlově dělí. Koncentruje se zde energie - buď se do brány hroutí, nebo z brány naopak prýští.

Je to tam divné a zvláštní.“
Tomáš Chadim (1973) je představitelem dnešní progresivní krajinářské fotografie. Nostalgické tendence ve fotografii jsou mu cizí. Namísto toho si s fotografií hraje. Digitálně manipuluje, obrací, převrací, skládá, ale výsledkem jsou vždy reálné scény, do nichž nás vtahuje a nutí nás k tomu, abychom přistoupili na jeho hru a stali se součástí zobrazené scény. V jeho případě ale nejde o samoúčelné manipulace s fotografií. Svá témata dlouho promýšlí tak, aby výsledný projekt byl inteligentní a vizuálně zajímavou krajinářskou fotografií.

Tomáš Chadim absolvoval Institut tvůrčí fotografie v Opavě. Vystavoval v České a Slovenské republice, Polsku, Francii, Rusku, Brazílii, Anglii, Srbsku a Maďarsku. Žije a pracuje v Praze.

ENG:
“I found them… those passages… over there inside the zone… gateways to some other dimension. They are visible only from certain angles. You must concentrate to discover them. Traditional relations between time and space count no more at those places. Time slows down there, space becomes distorted, you can feel a concentration of energy, which either collapses into the gateways, or gushes out of them. Those places are really strange.”

Tomas Chadim (1973) is a representative of contemporary progressive landscape photography. Nostalgic tendencies in photography are strange for him though. Instead, he plays with photography by using digital manipulations, making collages, flipping. Anyway, the outcomes are (in most cases) realistic scenes, which invite us to accede to his game and to become part of the displayed scene. Nevertheless, in his case, it is not a self-serving manipulation. He always thinks twice so that the final result is an intelligent and visually interesting landscape photography.

Tomas Chadim graduated from the Institute of Creative Photography in Opava. He exhibited his projects in the Czech and Slovak Republic, Poland, France, Russia, Brazil, England, Serbia and Hungary. He lives and works in Prague.
