For her photographic series Alexandra Zedtwitz chooses to work with the smallest instant film available. The small 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 relevance.
The material of the film is strong and plays a decisive role. There is no negative, only a positive, which has physically been present at the depicted scene. Between the layers the atmosphere is captured and every picture is unique. Its depth adds a mystic quality to the image.
