Transformance
by Andreas Muller-Pohle
Publisher's Description
"Normal (in a way `documentary') photographs attempt to hide their artificiality, their programmed nature, and to pretend that it is the world itself which is represented on their surfaces. Müller-Pohle's photographs don't partake of this delusion: they are `unsharp,' gestural, abstract, and it is difficult to recognize the world in them. They don't show the world; they show that the world is nothing but the raw material of which pictures are made. In this sense, they de-mythologize and de-magicize, and they inform by showing what has not been visible before: the interior of the black box and the processes that occur within it."--from the introduction.
