Photography / Art - Work in progress
Early on in my career as filmmaker, I earned an extra income by editing gay porn for a well-known video production company in Berlin. Recently I discovered, that I still possess most of the raw, unedited footage on an old hard drive. Right before throwing it out, I viewed some of the scenes and noticed, that in between takes, the cameras often had been running, capturing the periphery of the action. These blurry, unintentional images many times felt a lot more erotic and evocative to me than the actual performance, subtly hinting at rough, carnal action, without actually showing any clearly defined situation.
Currently I am carefully selecting these ambiguous, peripheral moments, transferring them from moving video to still images with the goal of creating a full collection of loosely connected, sensual, large sized prints.
