TRAVELING WITH MAGGIE
Posted on June 27, 2012 by Isabella Cecconi
The strange and quirky and mysterious life of Maggie. Who is Maggie? Simply, a fictional character created by talented photographer Ofer Wolberger. Maggie comes from another time and place. Maggie is a real person, surely alienated, who wears a mask and is depicted in different scenarios. It’s a fiction in a touristic and ordinary journey, it’s a fake life set with fake style and fake personality. Maggie travels around the world in a slippery sense of time passing and Ofer Wolberger’s images reflect on this strange habit. The imaginary tourists comes from the past and is trying to find a place where to fit. Maggie’s photo project is bizarre yet amusing. All the snapshots seems to be taken for her real personal archive. Ofer Wolberger is a New Yorker, recipient of The Humble Arts Foundation Spring 2008 Grant for Emerging Photographers. His pictures have been collected and exhibited internationally. A good discovery for all of us.
Say cheese Mag!
