Series: Thru Theth by Bobby Collins

About this series:

These series of images, ‘Thru Theth’ & ‘Albanian Aniamlia’, were largely shot with an empirical aspect, with the hopeful aim of having captured some of the spirit of photographer Kel Marubi. Marubi was an Albanian, best known for his pioneering use of cellulosic material for his hundreds of thousands of safeguarded historical images of Northern Albania at large.

Marubi had started his study of photography around the time of my Albania grandfather´s birth. After having learned about Marubi and his groundbreaking use of photography, I felt a strong urge, being 25% Albanian and an analogue photographer myself, to try to create some new, yet comparable classic images of Theth, and to share with everyone I can.

With Theth not having many modernized aspects about it since the era of Marubi, the only thing to modernize was the style of photography, by having to chose a film that would show the surroundings in a clearer, proportionate perspective, tantamount to the picturesqueness Marubi had once seen and captured.

Nonetheless, I hope to offer a comparable visual analogy of my abstract photographs of Theth, to the popular misperceived idea of Albania’s obscured past and present, along with its all time uniquely arcane beauty, that I captured on a hiking route at Grunas Canyon in the land of Albania. In this case, ‘ Thru Theth’!
