Idris Khan - London, 2012

Artist's statement:

"To make a single photograph, I use a lot of found imagery. A lot of photographs (the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, St. Paul's) were from the 1930s onward. I looked at a lot of stock photography as well, and went to all the horrible tourist shops in London to get every postcard I could find.

I used 70 to 100 images for each picture. I wouldn't necessarily take the whole image, but fragments of images, and bring them together on the computer. I would try to choose something that really stands out in the photograph. Roland Barthes called it the punctum.

What I quite like about the whole process is that these landmarks are photographed a million times a day, but you can create more than just a document — a feeling of stretched time. I try to capture the essence of the building — something that's been permanently imprinted in someone's mind, like a memory." [NY Times]
