2020 Finalists

Sanja PAHOKI

Artist statement: ‘Peg leg’ is an image I took of my mother showing me her bruise after she had fallen during one of her morning walks. She was posing in what she refers to as her ‘sunny room’ – a room at the back of her unit that was under repair.

I took the photograph with my old stereoscopic camera which takes two images at the same time mimicking the images we see out of each eye to create a sense of depth. For ‘Peg leg’, it was important to show a singular point of view, so a single image has been selected where all the elements are aligned.
