I make to many photos. Each meating is an overdose of pictures. Of taken pictures, of shown picures.
First there is specificity of photography, of digital photography. When Weston worked hardly with a view camera, he felt the call of the number and was desapointed not been able to make more. The digital technology explosed the material fence of the number of pictures. The number of photos has no real practical limit. And this comes naturaly, I did not conciously choose to take avatage of that. And it's not always true, when I photography objects, I do not shoot more than whith an argentic camera, there is somethings else.
After comes autodestruction. Too many pictures kill pictures. I drawn each picture in the procimity of the other pictures. Or maybe an attempt to hide something, to absolve the photography from what they represent, if no picture is important, neither what I do. Not a dillution of the responsability in the number, but a suppression as it is not possible to point at one photo.
There is the reject of the idol. The reject of this unique work which, by a genial action, should tell everything in one picture. A picture that would become sacred, that would be framed, a cult object. This is really a painting or drawing thing.
There is an absurd attempt of beeing honest. Exhibiting the weaker photos, because they have an equal part than the strong ones on what happened. Sticking to reality. Establishing an exhaustive story. Surrounding litteraly the subject, not in one condesed picture, but outlining it. Not pointed out, but making it appears by itself from the chaos of pictures.
There are the rifts. The discontinuous flow of the pictures makes spaces, breaks where meaning can comes out. Between two pictures, virgin space, an invitation to come inside, to imiscate, to penetrate. A kind of moucharabie where the holes invite eye crosse, a porous membrane for an osmotic diffusion.
There is inefficiency, wasting, free act. A undefined area, a loose story that goes randomly and loses itself. Vagrancy caught in the act.
