Imagine someone wants to take a photo of you. What do you expect to see in the next step?
The picture. We deal too much with the end result. What happens before a certain moment is captured in a photo? Everything that happened before the result, before the shutter opens again to copy the most important moment, is still relatively unknown. I dealt with this very topic.
The people about to be photographed were unexpectedly approached at places where they pursue their daily activities. By asking to be allowed to take a picture of them, various reactions were triggered. Nobody knew that the camera was capturing the sub-plots in living pictures, before I took the actual photo.
The resulting images have some interesting, psychologically afflicted individualities. They give the viewer an interesting insight into the situational behavior of people.
I let the camera roll and the people react.
Simultaneously with the short video a documentation booklet of this work was made, which includes a short introduction to Andy Warhol's Screen Tests and an analysis on my video portraits.
