For Top Collection 3, The House is Black reviewed the correlation between political figures with modern-day photography and how society channel their frustration through mock-edits. Be it the president, the corrupts and the sentenced, everything is packaged in a comical way to present our very own political condition; a real-life comic.
Reza Afisina hung photos of his own journey and public performance/appearance, captured in interesting photos that makes you wonder; what exactly is this person doing? Through various photos, he raised more questions that answers, which is a pretty interesting notion at the end of the day.
Reza Mustar picked the ghost phenomenon and compiled photos of ghost-like appearances from various sources. Its amazing how social beliefs and ancient paradigms makes us see smokes as ghost appearance; how it shifts our perception towards little details.
