The Nature of Things

This book project brings together a series of seemingly unrelated photographs mainly shot alongside more specific projects with precise agendas. I think of it as a celebration of the of medium of photography and it inherent qualities. Photography makes transparent processes of perception opaque. It materialises processes of perception. It does so by applying a system to reality: The system of flattening three-dimensional space, of extracting sound and movement. Paradoxically these reductive processes are also that which constitutes the continuing power of the medium. They represent its limitation as much as its strength.000002006004013008003016014009012010007020025024011033032022030031029028015023035034021019005036017027026037image
