AgCl (Unexposed Silversalts), 2010
Silverprints, 80cm x 110cm
AgCl (Unexposed Silversalts) is a series of photographs of unexposed silversalts photographed through an electron microscope. The materiality and rhythm of these pictures referes to a modernist formal language and the letters AgCl of the title are the chemical formula of silver chloride, one of the main compounds used in chemical-based photography. Just as the photographs invite interpretation, its evident that scientific methods also need to be interpreted and explained. In this sense the photographs represent in different ways the same shadings of reality as depictions of the real world.
