Vision behind the eyes

Memories set free.

“If everyone saw the world through green glasses, they would be forced to judge that everything they saw was green, and could never be sure whether their eyes saw things as they really are, or did not add something of their own to what they saw.”
Heinrich von Kleist

The series “1/20 Seconds” discusses the individual perception of reality by guiding viewers into their own world of thoughts. Quoting elements of the original subject in a subtle way the photographs force an interpretation from objective perception of the eye to a picture which was formed by a personal memory.

The transformation of the motifs into new colours and shapes is already achieved during the individual picture taking process by using the camera manually. Thereby each single picture is non-reproducible with the visible marks of the individual movement of the photographer while pushing the shutter.
