Van KeLaita creates photographic images that do not look like photographic images. It takes some time before the viewer identifies details, which initiate, at best, a vague recognition, yet, never being able to completely finalize it. KeLaita's work cuts the very string which connects them with the visible reality. KeLaita's work creates an intensity of physicality that is beyond the terrain of photography, it transforms the body beyond its physical dimension into an idea, a concept. The essence of a body without its physical representation.
