Square(s)

These pictures were taken with a mobile phone during the course of one year, starting in the summer of 2012 and ending in the summer of the next year. They contain both important moments as well as sudden visual stimuli.

They entail an artistic choice: they were edited with Instagram, but we understand that the pictures are the result of a painter's eye. The possibilities of Instagram are limited. For one, the camera that took the pictures has poor quality, as most cellphone-cameras do. Also, the Instagram-presets are pre-ordained and the square format is quite unnatural-looking. Instagram is often used to acquaint everyday pictures with a trendy and nostalgic look. This series attempts to avoid the classical "Instagram picture" and wishes to put forward a different kind of picture by altering the subject matter and through experimentation. The pictures are shown in chronological order.
