Using a camera without a lens, slide film was directly exposed to events and people. The titles of the individual pieces indicate what the film saw. I’m interested in the contrast between the ‘unmediated’ relic of the lens-less slide image and the total lack of literal representation, how that undermines or supports our ideas of the external image conveying an experience, as well as Roland Barthes’ idea of film photography “having been there.”
