Fotograf #24: Seeing is Believing. Pavel Banka (Ed.).

The issue entitled “Seeing is Believing” tackles the imaginary space “through the mirror” which deals with phenomena existing on the margins of scientific knowledge. Here photography plays the role of medium, documentary record, witness, and even of a means of evidence which attests to paranormal phenomena, spiritism, decadence, thoughtography (“mental photography”) and so on. On the other hand, the nature of the theme also touches certain motifs of the visual arts, such as mirroring, ghost images, and trompe l’oeil, even branching into Surrealism. The issue will combine the aforementioned approaches and perspectives, hoping to provoke mediation on the relationship between the technological image and reality, and on the authenticity of the medium of photography itself.

During a space of three years, Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs traveled several months through the United States, working ‘on the road’ on the photo series The Great Unreal. The photographic work deals with reality and the fabrication of reality. The geography of America serves as both setting and fertile ground for the examination.

Mysticism and demystification are important aspects in this process, as is working with a rich inventory of visual icons that can be continually deconstructed and manipulated. The working method of both photographers is based on interventions prescribed mostly by happenstance and change. Through repetition and associative placement, the sometimes crude, sometimes subtle interventions begin to link to one another, establishing an exciting transformation of reality that only hesitatingly reveals itself to the viewer.

Together with book designers Megi Zumstein and Claudio Barandun, what emerged is an unmitigated picture book that makes a visual journey possible without any instructions. It comprises narrative image sequences that approximate the curiosity and restlessness of being on the move and, at the same time, depict associative connections with the American landscape.
