Understanding the world requires you to keep a certain distance from it. Things that are too small to see with the naked eye, such as molecules and atoms, we magnify. Things that are too large, such as cloud formations, river deltas, constellations, we reduce. We need to bring it within the scope of our senses, to stabilise and fix it. When it has been fixed we call it knowledge. Karl Ove Knausgaård, A Death in the Family Aleix Plademunt’s photographic project Almost There was spurred on by the arrival of a postcard, 101 years late. Plademunt´s images play with scale as he explores time and distance, pulling both notions in the most extreme directions. The journeys begin within as Plademunt looks to his own being and the buildings blocks of his physical existence, from images of his red blood cells to his father in his youth. The narrative then reaches outwards, exploring the classic American documentary tradition of the road trip and the Solar System and beyond to the M79 globular cluster, located 42,0000 light years from Earth.
