Impact of the Moment
This project examines if it is the actual event or the visual that is the spectacle. In the moment of looking to question our curiosity what brings us to stare with guilty fascination at photographs of suffering and death? To challenge ones blasé response in viewing fictional suffering and death as opposed to reality. In terms of photographic representation, what is seen is merely a representation a construction the photograph stands for something somewhere else, what is literally represented is not full seen at all. Secondly, in representing fabricated scenarios the viewer is challenged to dismiss the photographs as a reconstruction and question if or why the spectacle still exists.
