In order to read, understand and decode the series of photographs made by Robert Hutinski and entitled Brave New World/Melancholia we must start on the beginning, which is its title.

The author is clearly saying that we as spectators of his series sooner or later need to cope with two words: brave and new. These two words are also key termsin psychoanalysis: on the one hand, ego always lacks courage; on the other hand, what is new represents an experience which he gains in the course of analysis. With other words: every person using pronoun Me is already in a position to suture the symbolic world in new and sometimes even radically new way. But ego is unable to do this due to lack of bravery; only the subject is able to do it.
