in between

„in between“ shows the space between two places. The whole time of a journey banned on light sensitive paper. You see the resulting light traces that are painted on light sensitive paper during its journey crossing borders of countries and continents. The exposure starts in one country and ends in another. What you see is the „in between“. Why do I care so much about the materials I use ? If you consider photography as a storytelling art, you will recognize that the used material is part of the story. It makes a difference if a sheet of light sensitive paper actually has travelled thousands of miles while being exposed or if its just a piece of paper where the visual impression of a voyage is printed on. Some may say, that for the final visible impression it doesn’t matter how an image has been created. I oppose this, that the creating process is part of the resulting work. The true story may only be told by the one who experienced it.
