About
Arena
"ARENA is a study of images and movement. Stark black and white photographs of faces have been airbrushed with colour. They dissolve one into another. The central image is a long boy: Guy. Guy is a deaf mute. As the film progresses, the viewer is exposed to Guy's special world of faces. In Arena, two worlds encounter each other, but the exchange is only visual - a dialogue of silence. Statement: ARENA is an experiment with photographs, adding colour to black and white images through dissolves."
