Sometimes too much information can distract one from the essence of things. As if we need to see things from a broader perspective, rather than focusing too much on detail. In portrait photography, for instance, it’s well known that by minimising information (in the form of shooting black and white) usually enhances the expression of the person portrayed. Or you can subtract information by blurring parts of or the entire image, to lead the views to see what’s important.

In this project I wanted to see how increasing the amount of detail, actually could reduce the overall impression, and thus give the broader perspective. As if the viewer gets the freedom to complete the artwork themselves, rather than having my interpretation served.
