What if a photograph were a piece of collective work?
Thank you Damien Faure (@befaure) who tweeted this to me. Corinne Vionnet is a Swiss-based artist whose specialty is historical monuments seen by hundreds. She superposes between 200 and 300 photos taken by tourists of a given monument. These works include lightly colored silhouettes which evoke passing time. To quote the artist: “Why do we always take the same picture, if not to interact with what
already exists?…The photograph proves our presence. And to be true, the picture will be perfectly consistent with the pictures in our collective memory.” See more photos here!
