Later is Always Different (2001)

Aas's photographs are completely open for the viewer's interpretative gaze, devoid of symbolism or tension. She shows us urban public spaces and suburban landscapes, which are neither city nor countryside. The human presence in these images is relatively mundane and quotidian, often reduced to mere traces or memories of their activities. The interplay between the people and these sites is, nevertheless, central to the shaping of both. The photographs in the series Later is Always Different become a kind of visual reminder of how our surroundings contribute to shaping our cultural identity – and vice versa.
