Published by Salvo
Unintentionally, when taking a photograph of a particular subject, one also captures other things. This democratic aspect, the camera’s indifferent reproduction of whatever the photographer aims to frame, causes a wealth of additional information in images. This edition addresses this theme, and seeks to reverse the intention to retrieve new information and highlight the “sideshow”. For instance, accidentally photographed flora and fauna, like flower arrangements, cats, pigeons, and even half horses. Or, taking it a step further, the experimental recovery of information lost by framing and cropping, through physically adding what the photographed subject might be seeing.
