Register of Facts

“The series Register of Facts emphasized the debate doubting the photograph’s ability to bear faithful testimony to any reality except its own. The photographs in the series describe a certain occurrence, or an abandoned scene of action that has long ended or not yet begun; however, the situation is enigmatic, and despite the multiplicity of detail it provides no tools for decipherment, even when the lens closes up to a detailed depiction of textures and stains. These provide no information to identify the commemorated places and moments geographically, chronologically or by narrative; they exist in the photograph’s time and place, in the work’s fictive timing.”
