As a self-taught photographer - I decided to study philosophy and history in order to find more questions to ask through photography, I guess - my approach versus my art has always been one based on historical (allegorical) and social practices. This evolved into a body of work around 'absence and photography'. Does photography as an art presuppose the presence or interference of an autonomous, free subject - the artist/photographer? Does it require an end product, a visible and present result - the photograph? Can photography, as an art form, create value and meaning in contemporary society, where not soon, but now, computers can create new images without human interference?
Can a 21st century photographer abandon the modernist-existentialist paradigma of his art, embodied by e.g. Cartier-Bresson or Stephen Shore?
For 2018 I follow up to this triptych with two new projects: Photographic-Therapeutic Walks, (3600 Steps), and Currency, a Polaroid Portrait Studio.
