photographs (selection) from the dummy | various sizes | 2015
This work aims to decode tourist snapshots. What duty do these pictures try to fulfill? As the figure (in the foreground) is not really favorable depicted and the sight (in the background) neither is really graspable, the question arises whether they operate just as evidence, showing the viewer: I was there.
By staging the poses in front of a white backdrop, I isolate the subject from its actual surrounding. The captions describe the weather (as in the source picture) and the person-to-monument proportion.
