WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
AN ILLUSORY GAZE

These fragments of reality

displayed by the photographs tell us that someone was there to see them and chose
to insert them within a frame of the camera's viewfinder, halting the event in time.
They illustrate the difficult and still unresolved problem photography has with the representation of reality.

For as much as an image is accurate

sharp, and exact, it always leaves us with a sense of lack, la mise en scène and its reproduction distance us from the actual event and present us a copy to interpret.
We enter a silent world that speaks through forms and lighting that
we must give meaning to.

Photography is a possibility of reality but also is not.

It gives us the impression of being true and representative of our world but only because we know how to read it. The reactions the indigenous people in New Guinea and Brazil had when anthropologists showed the bidimensional reproduction of their face in a polaroid, turning the photograph back and forth trying to give it meaning, demonstrates how a common system of symbols and signs is necessary to navigate the visual world.
