Description

Using a large format camera to insure clarity, precision and the illusion of factuality, Ingelevics explores the limits of historicization through documentation. This publication presents two bodies of work: photographs of hunting platforms scattered in the countryside and a series of images of woodpiles begun in Switzerland and continuing in Canada. The title refers to the prehistoric nature of the activities of hunting and the gathering and is, at the same time, an apt description of the activity of photography itself. Ingelevics’ intention is to show that photographs are not themselves historical objects but depend upon contexts and captions to allow them to contribute to history.

With essay by Kim Fullerton.
