What I see is what you get ★ Sas Schilten (1969)

She is an engaged and social photographer with her roots in the ’80s DIY punkscene when she expressed herself by playing bassguitar in a touring band.

“We had our view on society then and actually nothing has changed much since…, I just use another instrument to give tongue to it.”

Although her images might give the impression to be staged, her approach is still true to documentary photography. With use of framing and flashlight her images appear as scenes from a strange reality. She hopes this gives the image the stopping power in the huge pile we consume everyday and that it will tickle a thought; … what am I actually looking at?
She wants to stress that images can be used in a powerful and manipulative way, hence it is important to be aware of the language images can speak.
