Borys Makary: They were

Borys Makary: They were


The “They were” project boils down to the “Man Rey-esque” form of negatives, on which signs and digits, symbolising the personality of the character in the picture, were painted by hand. The starting point was numerology, certain symbols which were to say something about the given person. Each photograph tells the story of a different woman. Symbols and numbers are hand painted. Every copy of each picture is different.
