Panta Rhei

It’s just a blink of an eye, a fleeting moment in time between the present and the past, between now and then. It is this metamorphosis, the ephemeral quality of things that Marko Zink captures with his cool look, in pictures that provoke, intrigue, disturb even, but which always retain a respectful distance.

For this overwhelmingly beautiful and expressive under water staging, Marko Zink traveled to Greece each summer from 2004 to 2012, to capture his dreamed-up realities with an analog camera. Lifeless clothes and everyday consumer goods float through the sea at different times of the day and are brought to life by Zink. Everything flows, reality merges with dream worlds and leaves room for interpretation – a momentary glimpse of time, exposed to the elements, tells a story.

Marko Zink is clearly a photographer of the old school, although his birth year of 1975 wouldn’t necessarily indicate this. What gives it away, is the ease with which as a photographer he spans the interface between art and design, and doesn’t allow himself to succumb to the temptations of the latest technological wizardry that promises even more pixels and ever faster exposure times. Analogue not digital is his way; he takes his time, concentrating on his own unique vision. He is a photographer. Not the kind to pack thousands of images onto hard disk memories, just because digital technology allows you to. Marko Zink “dreams his series and concepts“, as he himself says, and they are not the kind of things you can find in the archives of the picture agencies.
