 Photographs have a relevance for things that cannot be said. 
 I can use the camera to make a place or landscape; the camera to a greater extent projects rather than “takes in” or reproduces. The camera, or, rather, the eye, produces the impression of the place: I as a photographer am not passively taking in; I am active as a subject generating the object. 
 I want to expose and evaluate the fact that the seeing and sensing process is a system that should not be taken for granted as natural—it’s a cultivated means of “reality” production that, as a system, can be negotiated and changed.
