Daily Photographs - A process to investigate my visual perception
I select one photograph
from those I took that day
wherever I happened to be
and I publish it
I find my images in everyday life. Several times during the course of the day I stop in my tracks because something has caught my attention. While I follow an impulse to create the photographs, I initially had no use for them. In 2006, as a way to store the images, I started to display them on nolden.com.
Unexpectedly the project evolved. Within the neatly arranged stream of photographs I began to notice recurring themes and a particular way of capturing them. What had started intuitively became a process of self-exploration, documenting and thereby investigating my visual perception.
The EVERYDAY project has been instrumental in developing my own personal aesthetic, the foundation of my art practice.
