2015 Emerging Photography Contender: Synchrodogs

For Supernatural, the Ukrainian photography duo Synchrodogs—composed of Tetiana Shcheglova and Roman Noven— takes us along for 4,000 mile road trip, using the natural world as a point of departure that ultimately leads us the precipice of a metaphysical realm that lies just beyond our comprehension. 

Write in Shcheglova and Noven their Artist Statement, “It deals with intuition, subconscious, natural phenomena, some human essence, which is unable to be explained by science, aiming to depart from what is usual or mundane. The project strives to convey the artists’ personal insightful sublime experience caused by the natural environment, erasing a line between the real and the imagined. 

“With the Supernatural project, Synchrodogs strived to create their own reality, used their own constructed images as a vehicle for erasing the line between the real and the illusive, between the natural and the artificial, between the evident and the unknown, uncovering edges of their own subconscious, using intuition as a way of acquiring knowledge without the use of a reason.”
