”I think I used to distrust these established conventions for understanding photographic-ness, but I really think that most artists aren’t really interested in pushing against them, because the myths have been long debunked. I think it’s more useful to think about photography’s elasticity, or as an example, its relationship to moving images”.

Ive been really quite interested in Daniel She since seeing his work at Unseen in Amsterdam. There is a certain characteristic to his images, almost as if film stills. He said "I think it’s more useful to think about photography’s elasticity, or as an example, its relationship to moving images”... and his work does just that. It leaves the viewer to question what the work is about and how your supposed to perceive the work. The multiple shots of what looks like the smae image at closer look are infact frames apart as if being shot on a movie camera. This is something I am really interested in and tried out with some recent grass studies I found myself shooting in Wanstead flats tot ry out a new Hasselblad I was borrowing.
