Photographies is a project, a practice, an exercise. I collect old photographs. Usually small prints

or contact sheet prints. I came to realize that when at exhibition, a work does not have to be ‘that

good’ to be great, impressive and moving if it is presented on a large format which makes up for

possible shortcomings. Therefore I decided to enlarge these small photographs. I use a copy

machine to make these, oftentimes downright ordinary, photographs powerful and convincing.

(The thought process being; Is it possible to determine how strongly convinced the author is

about their work just by the format of it? How self-confident are they?)
