NEWS RESIDUE, 2016

An average of one third of news photos from press agencies are nowhere to be found on the google indexed web, they only exists behind the login wall off the agency. They are not being used be anyone on the web. Based on this fact I produced a series of glass boxes reflecting a so called News Residue in which those images are put behind a clear see through wall. They are the exact 'leftover' images of one day of a specific event.
