natural history museum dioramas with an added twist – the hint of human presence…

when someone uses a camera to capture a diorama, what is the intention for that image: to express historic accuracy or to create individual fictions? Does the camera have the ability to inject life – a semblance of actual existence – into the constructed scene it captures? For production of the images, I chose to use one of the most historic processes of photographic reproduction – the photogravure – to imbue the final images with a sign of the hand, as well as a more historic aesthetic, adding to its suggestion of authenticity – a record from the past.
