For over a decade, Sylvie Readman has investigated photography as a visual language using a practice she refers to as “remaking.” Employing strategies such as re-photography, double exposure, movement, and limited depth of field, she builds a distance into the image which plays against the immediate, indexical nature of the photograph. By drawing attention to the photographic act as a calculated process of selection, deliberately framed and consciously constructed, Readman comments on both the nature of the medium and the human characteristic most associated with it: memory.
