Forhanna at Rencontres d’Arles 2023
Visual Story webinar #16
‘The Book Of Veles’
In edition 16 we discuss ‘The Book Of Veles’ by Jonas Bendiksen, and how this photographer tackled the issue of ‘fake news’ by creating his version of the story he found in the town of Veles.

“Today we no longer turn to God for answers to difficult questions, but to an algorithm, a new omniscient entity.”
Projected on 27 video-screens in the dome prison in Breda, The Netherlands, Van Kesteren shows religious ceremonies in Israel/Palestine next to secular ones. What are the believers looking for?
