Cade Klawiter

A photograph series for alternative realities. Does a photograph in its own create its own reality? By taking a photograph the shutter captures reality in the way the camera sees. My camera’s memory only remembers the moments in which I photographed.  

As a photographer, I find myself with a camera most of the time. My camera becomes an interconnected extension of myself.  

Looking back at my life I have a photograph to inform me where I’ve been and things I’ve seen. This memory that exists only exists as a photograph. Which means it is not at all what exists for me.  

Because a camera does not view life in the same linear fashion as I do. A photograph skips between moments of reality skipping moments in life. It exists in a reality of its own.  
To manipulate a photograph is to manipulate its reality. And with that is questions to follow. But for myself, I have become so interconnected with images that mimic the reality of us. I lose the moment of my life stolen by an idealized moment Rewriting my memory. An alternative reality.
