The work of Renato Stockler
Noticing people, their behaviour and reactions is the core element of this project. Capturing surface, which is human facial expressions, tells their individual stories as well as tendencies of life in the city. Apathy, exhaustion, anonymity, alienation and detachment… Public transport is where these things come across very vividly. Place where time gets distorted, people get carried away with their own matters, even though the environment is always changing and unstable. It is as if every person creates his/her own tiny private space. This project is a collection of private moments in public; spontaneous or still emotions of human beings in the routine of the city.

The internet, mobile phones and other devices gave us the opportunity for unlimited contact with others. Whether it’s within our own homes, the same neighbourhood and on the other side of the world it’s „Call me”, „Text me” or „See you on Skype”. The advance of technology has redefined the concept of interpersonal relations. Technology makes our life easier but almost imperceptibly our lives have gradually become dependent on it. Does technology enrich our lives or make them more superficial? Or does technology give our lives a whole new meaning? Modern Closeness, is a photographic journey by Jingis Mat ,documenting effect the advance of technology has on our lives and on the way we humans relate to one another.
