What happens when photography is no longer assumed to be a reliable method of reproducing reality? Can the photographic image, without manipulation in post production, become a representation of a fantasy world?
In capturing a digital image, there are countless veils of complications between the physical world and the image which the camera records. From the optical distortions characteristic of the chosen lens to the way the sensor records different wavelengths as color, the act of taking a photograph is not so much an act of recording reality, but instead taking an imprecise and unreliable mold of reality.
This series of images seeks to in some small way, display that veil of confusion between the real world and the fantasy that a photographic image provides.
