Uncertain is a project about reflections. First, specular ones, as the people from these portraits did not see the camera, when being shot. They were looking into the mirror that was placed between them and the photographer. Initially, it was an attempt to observe their behavior in the situation, when they were faced with their own gaze, the gaze of someone behind the reflecting surface and finally the mechanical gaze of the photographic apparatus. In the case of the viewer it is a reflection of another sort: on the differences and similarities between the natures of the still and moving image. The technologies of film and photography that have been tightly bound together throughout the history, here are juxtaposed. Their coexistence in one piece allows to explore the two ways of our perception of time, showing something that has once happened and something that is happening right now, when we are looking at it.
