Someone falls into an armchair or stands at the edge of a swimming pool--it's enough just to imagine the rest of the story. But then again, maybe it's not, since the photos preclude an unambiguous conclusion. Here Jenö Gindl presents photographic series, telling stories that originate in everyday life but seem alien anyway. His subtly staged photos are to be viewed as short films with no more than five or six frames that leave the observer's imagination to fill in the empty spaces with life.
Together, the picture series evince an almost incomprehensible, existential feeling of menace. By taking the speed out of stories and grounding their narrative flow, Gindl backloads every single image with meaning. Out of one simple story emerges a multifarious drama that remains open-ended.
