Photography is always ambivalent

Artist Blog by Claudia Fuggetti

As Wolfgang Tillmans observes:

"Photography is always ambivalent, because it can simultaneously be seen as truth and as fiction", or as Joan Fontcuberta says in "Pandemonium”:

"There is no boundary between reality and fiction in photography because the image is always a construction, an artifice."

In my artistic practice, I experiment a lot with photographic language, which can also include images that were not taken with a camera. In the case of Hot Zone, the images were taken with the camera and the colors were altered. This document of reality is transformed into something new, which paradoxically is representing the unreal par excellence: the lucid dream.
