Keep It Unreal
I make pictures for people so they can remember life just how they like it. It’s not real, but that’s how I remember everything anyway. I put it all together in front of me and point the camera at it and I work and work and work until everything is just right and then there it is! I look at the photograph and it feels real, the camera is good like that. The colours aren’t real though; they’re just made up, made up from my memory. I don’t mind, it’s just how I want to remember everything anyway. I try not to think about it too much, just enough so I know it’s me in there too, me in the picture.
Henry Trumble (b. 1980) is a Melbourne-based Photographer. In 2013, he completed a Photography Intensive at Columbia University in New York City and has since spent three years living and working in Berlin. Henry Trumble’s practice is based around new and traditional photographic processes and draws from an interest in the absurdities of the way we construct our world.
