Shooting himself

Shooting himself

After having placed an announcement in a small newspaper, I received a private archive of 29 original polaroid photographs which were taken from the same man over a period of 24 years (1982-2006) at a fun fair-shooting booth. The work „Shooting himself“ emerged from this collection. I selected the photographs based on the repeated wearing of the same outfit and a deserted background. The fascination of the recurrent gesture of shooting and the repetitive identical facial expression lead to portrait-like cut-outs. The installation arrangement includes blank spaces which suggest it being an extract of a bigger range.
