This Is How Digital Photos Getting Damaged

Sean Wang
In 2004, our family went on our last trip together. When I reviewed the photos taken with a digital camera at that time, I found them so strange, because on the screen, these photos were almost identical to the ones I took now. has to do with two factors: on the one hand, because the resolution of the screen is lower than the pixels of the camera, making the photos after 2004 even better quality, but unable to show on the screen. On the other hand, digital photos on the screen do not fade or yellow like physical photos. So time disappeared
in the photos, which is an experience that has never been had by individuals or even all mankind. The work Remnants mainly deals with this special phenomenon. I placed family travel photos on the screen and took pictures of them. So dust, noise and dandruff on the screen mixed with the photos, as if digital photos were given mottled traces. Through this way, I try to find intersections between family history, photography history and digital
technology progress.

Sean Wang, born in Taipei, Taiwan, received his master’s degree from the Graduate Institute of History at National Taiwan University and then went to the United States to study art photography. His creation uses photography as a medium, mainly exploring the relationship between photography and art after conceptual art. He is currently engaged in photography, teaching, criticism and creation. If you can see it, you will press the shutter.
