Marten Elder’s photographs offer a reconsideration of the way that images are captured in light of digital and technological developments. No longer satisfied by using the digital camera to replicate the look of colour film, which was in itself an attempt to approximate human vision, Elder uses the distinct characteristics of the digital camera to capture and process visual information in a new way. Working from the understanding that digital photography is more closely related to computers than traditional emulsion-based film processes, Elder’s photographs employ the conceptual idea of the camera and computer as a window through which images are seen, processed, and understood. Seen through the lens of digital photography and imaging, his practice works to reshape the relationship between photography, technology, and perceptual experience.
