Selfie #1 – 2014 – 32×32 cm, direct positive fiber-based gelatin-silver paper

Unexposed black-and-white photographic paper is folded into a light-tight box (a camera). The camera takes a photo inside of and onto itself – and with the help of a mirror, of itself. To see the image the camera must be unfolded and then developed, and the camera ceases to exist. The paper becomes the camera and the camera becomes the photograph.
