Photography and beyond is a series of films about art and design - "projections" that become visible as writings, drawings, photography, architecture and sculpture. The three newly-released films in the series are Miscellanea I and II (landscapes, architecture, exhibits, and sculpture), and the silent film The Basis of Make-Up I (writings and drawings).

A reverse visual process is analyzed: seeing as expression, not as impression. The eye as the interface between the brain and the outside world, the gaze as the compositional power that projects an ideas into the outside world or comprehends it by means of cinematography. From the writing, drawings, and studies of the works of various architechts something indescribable is formed: an expression in film of the objectification of mental thoughts.
