Nine selenium-toned silver gelatin prints from Kodak 35mm negative

It is not clear in these images where, if anywhere, the connections – between images, between objects within the images – lie. The viewer is held at the edge, finding the natural urge to piece together obscure hints and petty revelations both satisfied and frustrated and aware of the oscillation between both states. As in a steganograph, where a meaning might be encrypted but one cannot be sure, any meaning you choose is simply paranoid. JD-B
