In an interview, the British artist and photographer Craigie Horsfield said: the inescapable paradox of photography is that, no matter how far we explode the representational integrity of the figure, there is a residual trace of the phenomenal world. There is no escape from finally having to confront the fact of the real. We are thrown backwards and forwards between the poles of belief and doubt, there is no resolution. This statement well describes using photography in my artistic practice.
