Following from the previous post we are looking at the human public space with the work of Caroline de Vries . I recently came across some of her new projects "Street remnants"and "Urban Trees" both from the series "Small Archives". About her work in general Caroline de Vries says:
My practice has evolved and is now principally focused on questioning the nature of the photograph, especially the photographic portrait, its physicality and its power of representation in the public as in the private sphere. I wish to explore the complexity and ability of the medium to deliver narratives and new meanings, depending on context and presentation, through strategies of seriality, comparisons or decontextualisations. When a photograph is disengaged from time, space or identity, the viewer feels compelled to reconstruct the broken links between subject and context.
