"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." - Ernest Hemingway
Life with Maggie (2007-Present); a project by Ofer Wolberger
Resembling a photographic travel diary or a personal photo album, Life with Maggie is the unique record of a character lost in time and place.
Maggie travels around the contemporary world, but is attracted to sites with a slippery sense of time. Like the typical tourist, Maggie poses in front of objects and environments that suit her temperament, befriends the local people and visits iconic historical sites. Throughout her journey, Maggie collects memorable snapshots for her archive, in a sense constructing an identity through the photographs.
