Diploma project, ECAL 2014


by Manon Wertenbroek

My diploma work is based on the relationship I have with my brother. The way I show him in my pictures is characterised by the construction of all the elements composing my photographs. In my images, space is treated as a still life. The objects and settings that I create compose my pictures while giving rise to confusion at the same time. That way, my brother is both visible and difficult to reach. In each portrait my imagination forms itself in three dimensions to connect with my brother. The whole is then flattened by the medium of photography to become the physical frame of my mental images.
