The series of photographs “Latent Constructs” can be ordered within the tradition of abstract photography. This genre of photography deals with the basic principles of the medium itself: the play of light and shadow, the materiality of the paper, lens distortions, chromatic aberrations as well as visual traces of the aging process of the supporting material all play a role. Each photograph is the result of a complex production process in which the construction of a three dimensional material reality is transformed layer by layer into a unique single two dimensional image by means of many single exposures that are meshed together.

The original pictorial layers fade and become diffuse through repeated printings, while what was most recently photographed is in focus and has sharp contours. The image is therefore the result of artistic intervention combined with coincidence resulting from the production process. The work repeats within a linear timeline what is considered to be the most important means of identification of a photograph, the translation of space onto a surface. The images belonging to the photographic series “Latent Constructs” overcome the inherent logic of the photographic code, as they no longer imply a temporally singular referent. The photographed elements of the image become progressively encoded with each added step, thereby releasing them from their photographic symbolic character. [Extract : Portfolio]
