A rose is a rose is a rose

Karin Ott

I just uploaded my latest serie to my portfolio. See the rest of the shots here.

What is reality? A rose in a child’s thermos on the pavement on a busy street – reality, though perhaps not expected. But slowly the image and the surroundings dissolves. Nothing here has been tampered with. These are the actual images shot at the spot. But the bicyclist becomes transparent, the cars disappears, even the buildings disappears, and in the end only the rose is left. Does that mean the buildings and traffic doesn’t exist because they don’t register on the camera? Did they ever exist? And what questions might this lead to about the information that is given to us on a daily basis when non-photoshopped pictures can give such different versions of ‘The Truth’?
