How does one examine as a visitor the culture in which he lives?

In this project, Dan Yosefi explores the use of the camera for studying matter, not so much as a physical substance but as a set of cultural practices.
By documenting a variety of human environments and experiences, such as architecture, film, fine arts, material reality, and the human psyche in contemporary culture, this project aspires to visually conceptualize the global being of humanity and suggests to see it in a newlight, whatever that might be.

2009

My realization of this “matter studying” started the day I found some Images left on my old camera from a trip to Paris in 2009.
Examining these frames now is fascinating; Taking these shots as a non-technical non-photogrpaher tourist, I remember having so much respect for the subject I’m shooting,
while using Auto-mode. The results are flattened, flashy images that’s not at all flattering the heritage I got to know in my own eyes and feet walking around the palace.
As an adopted child I developed a foreign sight of culture, and western culture especially in my years as a grown person.

In my journey, I use the camera as a tool that completes my sensory experience to a certain extent, as it provides a new perception of a moment and allows it to be reviewed at resolutions that cannot be viewed by the human eye.
