untitled snapshots

type C photographs
dimensions vary

The series untitled snapshots utilised an ordinary plastic snapshot camera with its shutter removed to photograph moments from my everyday life. This intervention makes the exposure time dependent on my reflexes rather than on the mechanics of the camera, and renders the act of taking a photograph akin to physically grasping at the moment. There are hundreds of images in the series, from which various groupings are made for exhibition.
