Miklos Boros

Miklos Boros - Stranded



Over a period of two years Miklos Boros photographed a woman in her private and professional environment. In doing so he created the portrait of someone who is a single mother of three children, and a go-go dancer. The woman, who is Hungarian by birth, has lived and worked in Linz, Austria, since 1998. This book features a selection of photographs which authentically and unpretentiously records the everyday life of a thirty-year-old woman in both these contexts. Boros’s attention focuses on specific situations, looks, gestures, details, rooms and constellations. He seeks neither to moralise nor to comment. Instead, he allows the documentary approach to create a narrative quality which gradually fills the space in particular that exists between the photographs. The impact which characterises the “Stranded” project as a whole is created in this in-between area, an impact which with razor-sharp precision chisels a life situation out of anonymity and the portrait of a woman out of her status as available object. Indeed “Stranded” shows a person as a subject, at eye level.
