Photography always implies a relationship between a body – the man with a camera – and the world. Even today, photographic gear remains heavy and cumbersome, an impediment. Landscapes, too, are related to the body: we are wandering somewhere about the world when suddenly, without any perceivable signal, reality emerges with force and becomes an image. Landscapes, wherever one might be, are disorienting. In front of a landscape, we are no longer somewhere. A landscape imposes itself through over exposition, through endless scrutinizing.

For a photographer, the hardest thing to convey is the outburst of reality. The emerging of an image, as opposed to its emergence, which would imply the existence of further development. Paradoxically, the burden of the gear and the mass of the body act as a means of access; only through effort can this first impact, this moment of dawning, be impressed onto film. Matthieu Gafsou’s pictures constantly bring us that exact moment when the image happens. [Extract : About the indefinite by Michael Jakob]
