Iris Hutegger – ‘Perception and illusion’

Inspired by ‘the desire to see how the world looks in our absence’, photographer Iris Hutegger created a series of “seasonless” landscapes called ‘Perception and illusion

 “I use color negatives, which I developed as black & white photos, thus the photos become more of an abstraction. After that I sew (sewing machine) the photos. The photography simulates a reality and documents the transience. The treatment is integrated into the scene. When the viewer is a distance the photo looks like “one” picture. But closer to the photo the viewer will clearly see manipulation. The treatment turns the landscape into a ‘real image of fiction’.”
