Chris Engman is a photographer who creates installations and constructions in the landscape and inside preexisting architecture and then captures them through the camera from a single point. He is interested in the way these installations generate an illusion constructed only in order to be photographed from a precise vantage point. Engman’s work revolves around ideas of revealing the ambiguity and complexity of making images, of showing how “photographs are inherently a false, mediating and distancing way to experience the world.”
Engman continues to experiment with the invention of images by pinning photographs onto the surfaces of constructed architectural interventions or rooms in order to re-photograph them. These ephemeral architectural devices frame the landscape and play with shadow, light, and materiality.
