Odd Time, the first photobook by Mirjana Vrbaški, cuts to the core of Vrbaški’s practice: a ritualistic search for states of quiet tension, states that seem simple but conceal a profound complexity. Freed from linear logic, Odd Time juxtaposes Vrbaški’s acclaimed portraits of women, resonant of the Dutch masters and defyingly honest, against cryptic forest-scenes from the Dalmatian coast. In an era insistent on knowing and controlling, Odd Time opens space for a dissonant experience of the world instead. Modelling the book ager the asymmetric musical rhythm known as ‘odd time meter’ and native to Southern European musical traditions, Vrbaški composes a visual sequence that celebrates the hidden over the obvious. Facing and alternating each other, the images of this first publication reveal an approach to art in which careful craftsmanship is combined with rare philosophical depth.
