Max Slobodda's statement
Man expects a logical explanation for everything he sees in this world. If there’s not an immediate explanation he is forced to grapple with perception question his beliefs and form his own conclusion about what he has perceived. It is extremely difficult for man to accept the idea that there are still unanswered questions in this world. In this day and age is it even possible to accept an unknown as truth? To view the previously unimaginable as fact? In “Stranger Things” my goal is to let the incomprehensible remain that way. My aim is simply to let the viewer engage with the images without any guidelines or preconceived explanations letting their imagination run wild. My hope is that they will form their own answers about these photos or ideally engage with the work emotionally and let the unknown remain unknown.
