Catalogue Note

"I am a very traditional artist, as a draftsman as well as a photographer, but the unlikely encounter of these two media is what gives my work a contemporary character. The moment of the meeting of two media is a moment of truth where new forms are born... There’s something redeeming in using the barest mechanics to produce an image... I want to make you aware of how much you want to believe in the image—to be conscious of the measure of your own belief, rather than of my capacity to fool you." Vik Muniz
