About Bocse Daniel-Stefan
By their abstract state, signs, traces produced and left behind by men are later more definitive and more descriptive than the events themselves, viewed, documented from a dynamic, and not calculated, apparently objective point of view. I try to put myself in the shoes of a forensic photographer, personal scenography in which the subject, the ”crime” is, in fact, the sign of the presence and the human action.
I'm not an active photographer, I'm a passive photographer, I try as much as possible to get away from that hero photographer, whose heroic work forces him to throw himself in the middle of events, trying to be invisible, a dynamic shadow affected by what is unfolding in his face. Instead, I'm the kind of photographer that comes along with the cleaning team, documenting not what happens but what happened. Later, on the basis of this evidence, I build a truth, a reality, however objective I would try to be, especially by my dry approach, devoid of any visual or aesthetic effect or improvement, is not universal or unanimous but personal, and subjective.
