For my photographic series I choose to work with the smallest instant film available. The miniature size of the format is a conscious choice and stands in opposition to large scale art, questioning the value of bigness and the relevance of size.
Large scale often is a simple expression of boldness, overwhelming the spectator by mere magnitude. Size is still seen as a measurement for power, strength and reliability. The material of the film is strong and plays a decisive role. Negative and positive are interconnected and constitute an integer unit, which has physically been present at the depicted scene.
