The Killed Book

All photographs are memento mori.
To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality...

Susan Sontag

The Killed Book was inspired by so-called killed negatives (negatives of rejected images that were punctured with a hole puncher) by American photographers that were systematically destroyed in the 1930s.The collection I am building is personal, almost intimate, and very broad at the same time. The idea behind this project is finding the metaphor for the hidden, unexplained and incomplete; in objects, nature, people and situations.Whereas a picture usually documents reality, it can also hide it, so that it becomes inaccessible and the only thing we can do is interpret, like dreams, which in the end is just speculation.
