“Documentary photography has value, no doubt, but also it holds the danger to establish hegemony about the interpretation of reality. Even knowing about CGI (computer generated imagery) people act as if a photograph would be the same as the optical apperception of the pipe which is pictured, and what is believed to be seen exists or existed and happened indeed.

I put alongside non-referring, abstract and non-representational photography, which cannot and does not want to appear ‘realistic’. But still there are the questions for the reproduced (‘What is this?’), as if the essence of photography would be reproducing and if a photograph could not mean simply nothing like music for example.”
