‘Undecided Photographs’ are images without

any consciousness on the creation of the

photograph. Are these even photographs?

By accidents and clumsiness these imagery

came on my colornegative through the

back of the camera without any control or

decision. Yet they are build up by the three

key elements of photography: light, space and

time.

 

I only made the decision to use it as relevant.

The scanner included dust, color, frame,... .

The works are produced in hard plexi. Made

out of one piece. All the sides of the plexi are

hand-cranked.

 

These pictures have no anecdotes, neither

they have stories or memories. But most

important ‘Undecided Photographs’ is missing

the core of the medium photography,

namely the selective gaze/view of an author.
