Black and white photograph
47 x 47 cm
"In a photographic experience, which confronts the reality with the light-sensitive matter, there appears the ability of nature to produce its copy, picture, trace - depending on interpretation - anyway, an ability to record the time of the confrontation in a specific way. The awareness of such fact makes me, in a way, "suspend" the reality perceived by me, for I know that parallely there exists its another aspect; for another device, which also records and shows different results from those of mine. (…) During the perceptive experience, through all my senses I create pictures in memory, which seize to be visual, they rather became qualities that I could relate to the original, but now, what is the original, which piece of space-time?" - J. Bury, 1998, extract from "Photographic experience," pp. 20-23, in 2nd International Art Meeting, Katowice’98. Catalogue.
