Delphine Burtin’s New Series: Encouble

encouble n.f. [Swiss] something that embarrasses, that is unwelcome, that interferes or embarrasses.

Swiss photographer Delphine Burtin’s new series, ‘Encouble’, plays with visual illusions in her still life series.

I like visual accidents. I like thinking I’ve seen something that in reality is completely different. I like it when our brain plays tricks on us and creates a Trompe-l’oeil, making us see and believe something that is not, in fact, there. I like stumbling around everyday images, capturing or reconstructing copies of an uncertain reality.

My camera becomes a tool for visual experimentation. By combining images shot in the studio with those taken outside in natural light, by cutting up images and re-photographing earlier prints, I’m trying to distance myself from reality in order to question it.”
