“...stocks and commodity photos….designed to avoid any real-world specificity or strong markers of place, social class or ethnicity…such photographs are more like “codes without a message”." FROSH
My recent production involves the continuous process of re-moulding
images -a systematic variation of the amount of noise- in the attempt to
relieve them from their controlled state to unveil the truth.
I select the images among those that are normally embedded and
contextualized in other signifying systems with their connotations of assumed authority, trustworthiness, neutrality, reliability.
Noise, a by-product of the image capture - on which photographers have no control and that exists before the photographer intervention in the shaping of an image - is considered as the closest thing to a photographic «mark» and its presence incredibly keeps on restoring the confidence in photography
allegation of veracity.
Evidence, hypertrophic information, re-appropriation of memory, structure of the photography market and the nature of its exchange mechanisms are some the topics I have been digging my way through.
