Chris Engman is a photographer who creates installations and then captures them through the camera from a single point. He’s interested in the way the installation generates a “fake” reality constructed only in order to be shot from a precise point of view. The whole Engman’s work revolves around this idea of revealing the ambiguity of images, of showing how “photographs are inherently a false, mediating and distancing way to experience the world“.
Following his statement, Engman proceeded through his artistic career to experiment with the invention of images, pinning pictures on the wall and re-photographing them, constructing ephemeral architectural devices to frame the landscape and play with shadow, light and mirrors.
