‘Still’ is a self-published photobook inspired by cliché images of nature. The publication consists of eight booklets, each devoted to a different theme: Sun, Moon, Horizon, Mountain, Field, Sky I, Sky II and Cosmos.
An abundance of photographs, including images of nature, can be found on internet. A sunrise or sunset are photographed daily, although billions of such images have been made. These photo´s tend to look in a similar way, as if while making them we unconsciously reproduce the images we have seen already. An individual act of making a photo becomes part of an ongoing cliché production.
Photographs of imposing mountains, colourful fields, all the colours of the sun or different stands of the moon. In the project ´Still´ several nature themes have been recreated in the studio by photographing paper sculptures. Although these are photographs of fake nature, we might recognise them as images we know from our collective imagery experience.
