Evidence

In this series of black and white Polaroids it is unclear what precisely is happening in each image; it is only clear that something is happening.

Close inspection of each image reveals that they all depict events which take place in the same area and were photographed from a similar vantage point. The passive facts presented by each Polaroid do not tell a complete story but seem like they do, inviting speculation and interpretation.

This interpretation allows fictional events to be constructed out of real events. The juxtaposition of these Polaroids displayed together in pairs (denoted by the letter in each image’s title) expands and directs the narrative potential while subtle differences in details like the weather and objects cast suspicion on the truth of the connections created by these groupings.
