EVIDENCE

ABOUT

CV

In this series of black and white

Polaroids it is unclear what precisely

is happening in each image; it is only

clear that something is happening.

 

Close inspection of each image

reveals that they all depict events

which take place in the same area

and were photographed from

a similar vantage point.

 

The passive facts presented by each

Polaroid do not tell a complete story

but seem like they do, inviting

speculation and interpretation.

 

This interpretation allows

fictional events to be constructed

out of real events. The juxtaposition

of these Polaroids displayed together

in pairs expands and directs the

narrative potential while subtle

differences between images in

details like weather and objects

cast suspicion on the truth

of the connections created

by these groupings.

 

Real events take on a staged quality

as the Polaroids provide evidence

not for what did happen but

for what did not.
