In a digital age of ever-faster technological innovation, Douglas Mandry explores the photographic medium using analog methods. For 'Unseen Sights', published in the book 'Equivalences', the Swiss photographer was inspired by early 20th-century postcards from the Middle East. Using acrylic paint and an airbrush, he colourized black-and-white prints of landscapes in Cappadocia, Turkey, then re-photographed the compositions. Rather than merely reproducing images, the book offered the artist an opportunity to re-interpret the pictures. Playing with layers of colour in print, the artist created a new representation – using, this time, a mechanical process.
