Text on My eyes aint blue
my eyes ain't blue tries to capture the essence of the media of photography. The series raises questions about the identity of a photographed person. I am interested in the photograph as being both authentic and fictional. Who are those in front of me? I can see them but they are not here anymore … and yet they are. As much as I question photographic reality, I confirm it. The photographed people stare at us intensely and authentically: they are real. We think to be able to comprehend them but they are unfathomable. We think to know them but they do not give anything away. Roland Barthes: Mélisande does not conceal, but does not speak. Such is the Photograph: it cannot say what it lets us see.
