Photo, installation, screenshots

Manipulation and falsification are commonplace for photography, despite the documentary nature of this media. Artists who use photography rarely show the ins and outs of their work, providing one readymade photograph and leaving dozens and hundreds of pictures that have not been moderated overboard. A slight turn of the head, a slightly different angle — and the photo stops working. Photographers fake reality by presenting a version that is primarily convenient for them.

Topics of falsification, the substitution of reality, manipulation, and criticism of the medium of photography are the main ones in the “32” project. How to distinguish an original from a copy? What is the draft, and what is the final work? Can the production be considered reality? The project consists of several shots and objects that in one way or another answer the questions above using one particular shooting as example.
