A Quintology of Diaries is the most ambitious book project to date by Swiss artist and photographer Ferit Kuyas. Presented as a precious set of five bound books, it reveals astute social and personal observation through photographs and texts as Kuyas explores the trivial things in life that make us not only human but also interesting. Examine his own past through objects and stories that speak of identity and change. Each volume offers a different approach in its exploration of the many facets of life. Bill Kouwenhoven, who provides a key introduction to the work, compares it to a Cabinet of Curiosities and to titles like Fifty Objects and Some Things I Haven't Touched in Five Years and Everything You Didn't Want to Know About Me, it's clear that the meaning of collector is paramount. The journey Kuyas travels is bittersweet. Each item within its collections is infused with personal experience and in this expression of a life we not only see moments of great warmth but also of regret. It is as if we were invited to read their private diaries and the openness they show is compelling and something we can all relate to. Time has the power to clear up the past, and as Kuyas rummages through his memories, he discovers something life-affirming in the process. It is such a human journey, so well known; a journey that only he has traveled but that we all share. Ferit Kuyas is an artist, photographer, curator, and teacher. A Quintology of Diaries is her sixth book project. His work has been widely exhibited in museums, galleries, and festivals around the world and is represented in numerous private, corporate, and public collections, including the Houston Museum of Fine Arts; Musèe de la Photographie, Charleroi, Belgium; and the Portland Museum of Art, Portland. He has received several awards, including the Kodak Photobook-Award and the Hasselblad Masters. Kuyas was born in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1955. He now lives near Zurich, Switzerland.iza.
