Habitus

Italy  I  2013

 

The series arose from Pierre Bourdieu´s statement

 

“The ‘eye’ is the product of its history”.

At first sight, it seems the sea is the same for everyone. 

Nevertheless, everyone sees, and perceives it differently as of their own past, their social status and their socialization through their family and surroundings. The items which they brought to the sea should act as symbols of the prior history through which they perceive / see the sea.
