A mirage is an optical phenomenon that produces a visual illusion. The name comes from a Latin word meaning "to be in awe". The video "Mirage" was created in an ongoing process, and deals with an attempt to understand the medium of photography today, at a time when a photographer is not necessarily a photographer but just a man with a camera. The work was assembled from photographic materials (video and stills), taken over several years, mainly in the U.S., and sound segments from David Perlov's last film "My Stills"(2003) that have been edited and reassembled. The result is a kind of a cinematic collage that relates to the photographic image as a representation of the world and at the same time as a mirage.
