The Museum's Ghosts

by Andrés Wertheim


Photographs: Andrés Wertheim

Publisher: La Luminosa Fotografia

Year: 2018

Price: 25     15.00

Comments: edition of 500, numbered

In this series I explore the different visible planes of reality through double exposures made on camera invarious museums around the world.
 
Although in each shot I document what is placed in front of our eyes as we see it,  overlapping them I questionthe notion of truthfulness in photography, trying to transmit something that we do not see.

In the same room of a museum, I merge in correlative exposures the inanimate characters of the works of artand the visitors, producing a dialogue between them in the final image.
 
Past and present intertwine for a moment in an oneiric dimension, testing our perception.

Addressing the ambiguity of photographic description, with this work I propose a reflection on our interactionwith exhibited art and with museums as depositaries of our visual history.
