Julia Debus on Konsens: “In the Leporello entitled Konsens, images of landscapes blend together: rural areas, intermediate areas — out of scope of attention, subsistence agriculture, and a lot of space whose use is not obvious at first glance. Areas that seldom form the beginning or end of a journey but are usually crossed. Grasslands, rock formations, scrub, trees, rivers. A connecting motif are paths – which appear in different forms. The photographs were taken in transit, on railroad tracks over several thousand kilometers on trips across India.
For me, paths embody the opportunity to view a landscape with concentration: fixed points in the passing space. The documentary idea, which was still present during conception, dissolves in the process of photographing, editing and transferring into a new context. The Leporello offers a multitude of perspectives: folded up, it is as compact as a book, unfolded with a length of 7m, a predominant object. Through this duality, and the variety of possible combinations, an open narrative is created.”
