Photography & Statement Lauren Musson
‘The State Inbetween’ is a collection of pinhole images that rely on
the importance of light and movement. Heavy research into the psychoanalytic theory of the unconscious and the surrealist movement that began in the early 20th century, ‘The State Inbetween’ is a composed project that takes away the relationship between photographer and camera. It allows the camera itself to form its own consciousness. Photographing the body’s movement into one still image transforms the human form into a metamorphosis that the camera captures through the exposure of light and the subject’s movement. Which leaves me as the photographer idle as the camera’s apparatus and the cameras consciousness to be the dominating tool to produce the outcome.
