Description

The Shot / Reverse Shot series disassembles and reconstructs the darkroom process, a sort of visual instruction manual for making photograms. The images show both the paper being exposed by the camera’s flash (the shot) and the resulting photogram (the reverse shot). The Shot / Reverse Shot diptychs stemmed from a desire to record the objects as they are versus having to decontextualize the materials from the landscape by bringing them into the darkroom. This work was simultaneously informed by a book of interviews Graf was reading with Jean-Luc Godard who spoke about the shot / reverse shot technique in cinema being all wrong - the person speaking should be filmed over the listener's shoulder for the shot and the reverse shot should rotate to film the listener's reaction. This made Graf occupied with how to make a shot / reverse shot with still images, while simultaneously pursuing the desire to make a photogram outside.
