Taking Turns Taking Pictures

2007. Archival pigment prints, silver gelatin prints, Polaroid
Variable dimensions.

I created this series of photographs by placing in line all of my video cameras and still cameras upon a bed of grass. The logic is simple: I went down the line, picking up one camera at a time to photograph the remaining cameras. The printed photographs are a result of the camera’s photographic capacity; they are the largest prints that can be produced from that particular camera, without image distortion. This work leads the viewer to think about different ways of seeing, depending on the device or the lens in which one views. It questions the gaze of the camera and its role in producing “truthful” anthropological documents and evidence.
