almost there

Maria Friberg. almost there , 2000.

Description:
”almost there” is a series of seven photos. The men in ”almost there” are fully capable of creating control, while at the same time it doesn’t seem possible for them to influence their own situation. They are almost there, nearly reaching an undecided and unknown goal. A situation in which everything is in transition creates a kind of horrifying excitement. Or as Michel Serres writes: "man has always been afraid of wind and water and now we are afraid of disorder and the unpredictable. It is this fear that returns repeatedly in Maria Friberg’s images – loss of control and order in a context that, both literally and metaphorically, floats."
