One Month On Skin
54 cm x 62 cm
b&w silver gelatine prints, framed
A developed but blank piece of a middle format negative is given to a person for one month. During this period, the negative is carried on the body the whole time. Within this timespan a photographic image is being created without a camera, directly by bodily imprints and other mechanic impacts leaving traces on the negative. The resulting image, an abstract as well as intimate portrait, is created in a collaborative process by the „photographer“ and carrier of the negative.
