For Falsification, volume six of The Gould Collection, altered realities—by choice or coercion—inform the pairing of photographs by Seba Kurtis with a short story by Hiromi Kawakami. Conflict, whether national or local, transforms and imprints lives. Some flee, others remain, but all are marked by the trauma. Memories of what was are often elusive or completely altered, even after life regains some degree of normalcy.
About Seba Kurtis
Seba Kurtis is an Argentine photographer who studied journalism in Buenos Aires before leaving for Europe in the wake of Argentina’s 2001 political and economic crisis. His work, informed by his five years spent as an illegal immigrant in Spain, explores the dynamics behind irregular migration and the resultant impact on culture, society and the individual. Rendered through unorthodox and experimental photographic techniques, his images expose stateless individuals as they navigate treacherous terrain and uncertain futures. Currently based in Manchester, UK, he exhibits his photographs internationally, with recent solo shows in Europe and the United States.
