Dark Chambers / Dunkle Kammern

Dark Rooms. In Plato’s cave man becomes conscious for the first time of the deceptive power of the image and experiences what he sees as a pure copy of the truth. In the darkness, hidden from the world of light, quite by chance a first reflection about the truth content of photography arises. The cave thus becomes a prototype of the photographic dark room – it is where images are produced. The constant wish of man for visual miracles, which manifest themselves outside their dark walls as truths become images, is reflected in their own photographic image.
