(2010 – 2013)
In this ongoing series I have traced the repetitive nature of the photographic image by looking for repetition in everyday life. With a detached documentary approach, I aim to reverse the relation between image and life in order to question the location of the referent.
I believe that the most important attribute of the photographic image is the rupture it introduces to the rhythm of life; it offers us an opportunity to distance us from ourselves. However, if the pictures form a rhythm of their own then this capacity is lost.
That the photographic image influences our way of being is a fact that cannot be denied. But a fact as evident as that is that our way of being is the fundamental condition of photography. It is in this terrain, between these two, that I think the structures of both appear.
