AYLINE OLUKMAN


Works  
Biography


 Born in 1981. Lives and works in New York.

«I have this fascination for the Californian desert, this American out of time, full of myths and mystery.
My favorite experience is to drive there and stop whenever I want to, take pictures, visited Small un-attractive cities, stay in motels and live my own private road movie.
What I research in photography is to capture this moment where the action is about to happen, I think the landscape like an empty sequence from a movie scène, a solitary space -Hardly crossed by silhouettes- enigmatic and intense. I like the confusion surrounded by the past, the relation with eternal beauty and the golden age cinematographic pictures. I use some found imagery to complete this storyboard of this American elegy».

Ayline Olukman feels a permanent call to travel, an urge to discover other places, other people, other stories to face the clichés and compare them on site to her own representations, to these common archetypes that usually held on the glossy catalogs and guides. Her work combine pictures she shoots during her many travels and also old pictures from the 50’ she found during her travels. Both of these pictures compile her own world, full of Disuse.
