The bigger picture

When photographers play with the interconnection of the actual reality and a constructed illusion, it's nothing new. It comes with the turf, I'd say. But especially if it's large-scaled, and if it's an actual installation in the public realm, it can become a work that verges in of the concept of street art.

And the work of the photographer/artist Renate Buser (from Basel) is exactly that. She takes an existing situation and adds a distortion of reality to it. It could be a shifted perspective, a new layer of meaning or a new way of seeing things. Because of the reality of the image, mixed with the large scale, it ends up in a rather surreal setting, where all constructed realities can be questioned as being true and false at the same time. Other than that: it just looks really amazing!
