Each of us then integrates our own interpretation of the subject, dependant both on memory and personal associations. Two balanced pine needles can tell infinitely different stories to anyone who observes them; the same goes for an airplanes shadow, a particular flower, a bed of nettles. Beyond the single image, a process of collaging and superimposing botanical photographs in the darkroom bore the Binder series, leading almost to pure abstraction.
Analogue photography is possible through a reaction between light, chemistry and a support that makes up the photographic object, offering a new life and possibility for our observations. This ma- terial translation is a central point for Benjamin Jones, and the papers on which he prints maintain their shape and thickness, clearly visible within the frame. On sheets of wet paper the light rests, and chemistry is able to freely compose, poetically creating the Fog series through this framework of chance.
