In this series of drawings I deal with the given picture. Selected historical or self made photographs become drawings. Transforming a photo-automatic picture into a graphic-manual picture causes an intentional loss of specified information. In place of which then the poetry of the appropriate occurs.
The historic touch of certain old photographs provides them with an aura of uniqueness and testimony. Nowadays there are many pictures, we have pictures always, everywhere and illustrating each and every subject. At a certain point I was sick and tired of the masses of pictures: there was no necessity for new pictures! So many photographs appeared to me as superfluous versions of the eternally same.
Therefore it seemed more reasonable to me to use given pictures and to extract ‘by hand’ the factors to which they owed their existence and in which I was interested. These are the factors of appreciation, distinctiveness, remembrance, accentuation but also coincidence, coupled with a certain ‘spell’ that emanates a photograph.
