Each week, we’re showcasing the work of a photographer who caught our eye with their striking images and inspirational focus. This week, Ingvar Kenne (@ingvarkenne) is presenting work from his beautiful series “CITIZEN - Portraits Since 1994.” Keep reading for an explanation of the work from the artist, and be sure to share your own work with us by using #LensCultureDiscovery !
These portraits have, over time, become deeply connected by process alone: an emotional beam returned, then shifted and reflected. It hooks each person to the next, allowing an examination of an accidental population, gathered across twenty plus years and over fifty countries.
What connects two humans within a population? The photographer and the photographed. Why turn the camera to this particular shepherd, pornstar, diver, cleaner, dancer, or indeed my own family? The taxonomy of this population was never the purpose, yet it is the inevitable outcome.
No borders, no sides, no issue.
What triggers the making of these images beyond chance? I find myself compelled to discover, resolve and structure in the disordered search. To look for connections using the same parameters - a manual in my head that is impossible to ignore. The purpose is in the obsessive doing, in the making of the pictures, in the visual exploration of that moment, and in the act of recording humans in a particular place where we converge. Perhaps this documentation of encounters, once collected, illuminates the power of direct contact.
En medio de tanto alboroto por la carrera de ciclismo, éste señor estaba sentado, leyendo y de espaldas al evento, como lo ven, en el jardín que va a dar a la canalización del Estadio (Medellín), debajo del viaducto del metro.
