Photography is primarily interested in reflected light, percepting things lunarly. What becomes documented is in most cases bark, only texture.
The “Shipwreck” series consists of 10 sepia toned gelatine silver prints. The principle which led me during the making of the series was to clear the image of all the unnecessaries and to make the compositions with as few elements as possible. In other words, to simplify the form thus leaving the object in a limbo occupied only by its altered meaning.
Back lighting the material allowed its transparency to show. This was also conceived as a diversion – the role of the camera was heavily reduced, going back to photo essentials and creating images which could ultimately be described as negative photograms.
