Nazar - Western eyes

Ilkka Uimonen

CYCLES (2000)

Photographer Ilkka Uimonen (b. Finland, 1966) sees the conflicts in the Middle East as a part of an endless cycle of violence. This began three millennia ago and entered a new phase in 2000 with the start of the second Intifada. In the two years that Uimonen devoted to recording it, the conflict claimed 600 Israeli and 1600 Palestinian lives. The Finn sees his photographs as the record of a cycle of violence which, to his mind, will go on for the next 1000 years. As his justification he cites the philosophy of Carl Jung, who proposed that conflicts will never be resolved so long as emotions have displaced reason.
