PHOTOPAPER 25 – Daniel Gustav Cramer
Tales (Algodones Dunes, California, United States, December 2015), 2017
Tales is an ongoing photographic enquiry (2000—today). The individual series in the project depict micro-narratives of people in natural surroundings or traces of their actions. Both the photographic documents and the gaps between the images create a fragment of a tale. Often, the repositioning of the camera or the motion of the subjects suggest a sculptural gesture in the space of the image.
