Photography always depends on the camera. Not because of the technical aspects, but because of its characteristics and the feeling when holding the camera. It is kind of the same relationship a visual artist has with its preferred method or tool to express himself. Some day I found an old digital camera on a garbage heap that still took pictures but distorted its photographs irregularly.
I was really fascinated by the aesthetics it produced and also by the uncontrollability. I never knew when the camera distorted the image. This gave me a whole new perspective on the relationship of a photographer and the tool he uses. With this series I am questioning this relationship to equipment and demand for quality. I relied myself on this broken camera and therefore added an additional factor of randomness to the medium photography.
