In Ornela Aliaj’s photographs she is expressing the idea of ‘becoming’; not in the sense that one is to ‘be’ this or ‘be’ that, but that one is always in the process of differing. From oneself, as much as from others, in ones being, as much as in ones ideas. It is chaotic, perhaps; or restless; that one never is, or was, but finds oneself floating in unknown space. This appeals to Ornela, and it is what she seeks to show in her photos; for there was always an umbilical cord between the subject matter and the image, that motionless repetition of the same, one which, in her attempt, she hopes to cut across.
