A documentary fiction in virtual reality, The Unknown Photographer is a surrealistic plunge into the fragmented and diffuse memories of World War One photographer Fletcher Wade. Spectators are immersed in a vivid museum composition that combines impossible architectures and sculptures, authentic photographs and meetings with captivating allegorical characters in a dream-like 3D universe. Guided by a narrator who captures the inner voice of Fletcher Wade, spectators embark on a poetic voyage that invites them to question human memory and the role of imagery in wartimes past and present.
