The project You Are My Favorite is about transferring photographs of great internet artists from their virtual reality onto real walls, printed on real paper.
It started with an exhibition in 2011 with my favorite pictures of 30 female photographers from all around the world acquainted via flickr.
I wanted to show them in a new context and a very special place in order to protect them from getting lost (perishing) on the internet.
To allow a deeper, more pensive reflection, I decided to make a book out of the project.
The selection of photographs mixed with analogue processes like cyanotype, letterpress setting and special paper qualities influence the viewer to percieve the same pictures from the fast, overfilled internet in a more conscious, slowed down way.
A second exhibition with 11 participating photographers took place at February 2012.
Thanks to LOKAL, which hosted both exhibitions and gave live to this project!
