Most of Xuereb’s photographic works are products from itching curiosity of wondering how it would look if photographed. And if these ideas are not neglected, the only way to find rest is to develop the concept into a visual.
Most of the works are photographs taken in series. These images are either a repetition of the same subject, in different conditions, or similar subjects in a common situation. The repetitiveness in the work show a true craving desire to understand and explore the perception coming from the circumstances photographed.
Xuereb’s photography is rarely about anything directly shown; alternatively it is a celebration of the merging of various unsystematic camera techniques and random subjects. When these are put together they combine, and create an experience of serenity, where one can visualise stillness, silence, simplicity and timelessness.
