Sequence and Movement

July 8, 2013

Due to the development of the medium photography, the action of taking an image became more abstract than it used to be. Taking a picture does not require more than the simple push of a button. The picture is taken and as quickly disappears again in thin air. There is no material or physical consequence to the action. In some situations it seems that taking a picture becomes more important than the photograph it produces. As if taking pictures provides context, reason even, to explore something. It offers an excuse to come closer, to move around. In this case it results in a series of photographs where the movement towards a point of interest is visible. Intrigued by the observed situation, the act of photography is no longer deliberate.
