perfection a prerequisite for being a photographer?
Is perfection as such obtainable at all?
This is even more relevant with regard to Jean Baudrillard's theory of the 'simulacrum'. Analogously one could claim that photography as a simulation of the inaccessible reality is unsuitable to represent the latter properly.
Therefore is there an overarching, macronarrative-like theory of photography?

HANDS ON APPROACH
This series of pieces of work reflects the approach to capture the construction of reality.
Life is but a construction.
I reckon objects of everyday use which seem so self-evident of particular interest for constructing something new.
Beauty is to be found in the subtle objects.
With construction I do not intend to focus on setting a model into perfect scene but rather capture what is given without judging in first place.
There is enormous potential to learn from such inconspicuous moments such as for example about the quality of material, about the lightning, about the perception of space.
