Arslan Ahmedov: Vanishing Gods

Edited by Jenna E. Garrett. Photos by Arslan Ahmedov.

Bulgarian artist Arslan Ahmedov uses a combination of analogue photography and manipulated texture to create ephemeral portraits and ethereal landscapes, all just beyond reach. Often naming his works after mythological gods and famous people from history, Ahmedov insists these are not direct representations of the legends themselves but a nuance in our own minds of these long forgotten glories. Obscuring the image allows for a play with time, removing the “now” and “then” for a suspended reality without obvious identity or location.
