Bashir Borlakov in his photographs, combines images and elements unexpected to be juxtaposed and therefore creates a sense of deterritorialization on the understanding of the viewer. He builds up compositions, which instead of clear interpretations, open the door for connotations. The horizontal and panoramic framing where the artist uses the old Soviet rural as a background, focuses on a broader time that has a different rhythm and functioning than the pace of metropolis and where the nature reciprocates it. Besides the amazingness of the juxtaposition, it also produces transitions and slips between time layers.
