“Focus of this series of photographs is our contradictory relationship to the violence, namely the use of violence in order to control it (either to stop it or to prevent its reappearing). History shows that the winner of the violent conflict always has justified reasons to be violent, because he uses his dominance to (re)write the history. Art is, more often than not, instrumentalised, depicting winners as idealised heroes while the loser’s depictions are exposed to iconoclasm. The main problems are that we are always able to justify any kind of violence; that too often only the use of violence is effective in controlling it and that it is immposible to control the violence used to control the violence. Photographic series documents the consequences of violence to censor the depiction of violence and points out our contradictory notion of its use. The original paintings have been subject to censorship and iconoclasm. They depict violent revolutions or events in 19.century, that in today’s terms justify or condemn the use of violence to achieve their aims; judged according to the values that are today most highly appreciated: freedom and democracy.”

Facing the Foliage with @cnstzn

For more flower portraits, browse the #facethefoliage hashtag and follow @justinablakeney and @cnstzn on Instagram.

Inspired by Justina Blakeney’s (@justinablakeney) #facethefoliage hashtag, Turkey Instagrammer Cansu Tüzan (@cnstzn) started to bring her portraits to life. Using everyday objects including flowers, seashells, metal scraps and jewelry, the student living in Gelibolu, Çanakkale, arranges objects on her desk before creating a character. “When I travel or walk anywhere, I am trying to look for all the details. I am always looking very carefully at everything as all the dried branches, flowers and leaves help me to create new characters.”

Cansu explains how she puts together each photo. “I try to shape hair and eyes, then I realize that the portrait is starting to look at me,” she says. “After I design the portrait, I wonder where it lives or whether the face belongs to a real person. Some of my followers claim my portraits look like their friends or relatives. This feeling makes me happy, as I am dreamer and I love showing my dreams through my works.”
