In 'Mask', Andrea Stultiens not just looks 'through' the images made by an anonymous Dutch photorapher from the mid 20th century, but also at them. The glassplate negatives that the portraits were made on have drawings on them, that were meant to enhance (retouche) the image, but that also are fascinating images in themselves.
My work always starts with a story or found documents and photographs, something ‘real’. I gues this makes it documentary photography, but not necesarrily in the traditional sence of the word. I show the everyday of ordinary people, and the way photographs give us an opportunity to relate to, deal with, and escape it. I try to question the photographic way of representing a reality in different ways. For example in panoramic photographs or the use of vernacular images in combination with photographs and/or with text. See my website for more information and an up to date c.v.
