Sync is a photobook that calls for reflection in times when technological progress seems to be accelerating. Taking part and going along with the “manufacturable world” seems to matter more in the 21st century than coming to one’s senses. In a highly modernist society that largely takes place online, Maria Dabrowski started to focus her photography on finding a new balance. More and more people struggle with burnouts and mental problems continue to increase in our fast-paced, demanding world. Sync tries to shed a new light to a more subjective and natural rhythm, with attention for the details of the everyday.
The analogue photo series enters a layered interaction with the graphic design developed in collaboration with Studio Another Day. The whole is supported by a critical text written by Joris van Merwijk, which puts people’s subjective experience of time above the hectic, objective time of the west.
