DESCRIPTION

The blind spot of a photograph refers to something not visible or shown but nonetheless latent in the image. Dismissing the dominant pictorial regime, the images in “A Blind Spot” preserve an openness and indeterminacy that precludes reducing them to a description or illustration of a specific reality. This is the point of departure for questioning the documentary aspect in contemporary artistic and photographic practices.
