Distorted Landscape by Laura Plageman
- Esther Jablotschkin
Set against the backdrop of the digital age, Laura Plageman considers notions of realism and authenticity using analog processes. In her ‘Response’ series, she treats photographs as both representations and tangible objects, touching on the possibilities of realist representation, referentiality, and the photograph-as-thing. ‘My process unfolds through observation and experimentation; I let the image and its materiality dictate its direction. Playing with paper and light in unplanned and organic ways, I look for new ways to perceive space, form, and context of my subjects.’ she explains.
