“Queequeg was a native of Kokovoko, an island far away to the West and South. It is not down in any map; true places never are.”
― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick or, The Whale
Named after the imaginary island from Moby Dick, Kokovoko project defines a journey to proximity. The main idea is to draw a photographic map of proximity. Jordi V. Pou photographs that personal true places not present in any map. Kokovoko is a daily updated photo diary full personal moments. All pictures taken while normal daily life.
This is not a documentary project, not even a street photography project, Kokovoko is real for Jordi but also a big lie to any viewer. Photography is not real anymore, images born and die daily, with no rules just feelings, don’t try to understand them. This is not a collection of photograhs, this is a map, Jordi’s Kokovoko map.
The project started back in October 2009, and at least one daily image has been added since them, for more than 4 years now. The original idea also included to investigate new opportunities and trends in photography related with internet and image sharing. That’s why it was defined as a photoblog and all the images were done using an smartphone camera.
Project site also include quotes or sort texts which Jordi uses as a guide to understand the feelings behind the images and the photographer.
