    The Belgian photographer Carmen De Vos shoots Polaroids to frame her mental (sexual) escapades. She enormously longs for what she’s afraid to loose: real human contact, the slowness of being and creating, the tangibility of materials. She thinks up situations and collects fantasies. Almost without exception she uses old Polaroid camera’s, long time expired film and self-made filters. Her tools and methods are film bleaching and deliberate film obstruction are not geared towards a perfect representation. They often yield results – such as colorization, deformation, unsharpness. Furthermore she is fascinated by the unreliability of the human memory as an instrument for recording reality. Our recollection is at best a potpourri of isolated but genuine events. Often not even that. Our memory assails us with a medley of impressions we have assembled throughout the years. Our brain orders, rearranges, adapts, interprets, colors, decolorizes, dims and accentuates these memories of our wannabe past independently of our conscious will. In many ways as do her Polaroid pictures.

Carmen De Vos

Born in: 1967 Belgium
Translation in progress

Carmen De Vos (° 1967) is an independent experimental photographer with a penchant for imperfections. She began to photograph several years ago and especially with the Polaroid. "Almost without exception, I use old Polaroid cameras, long-term expired films and self-made filters. My tools and methods - such as film bleaching and deliberate film obstruction - are not are not even oriented towards a perfect representation, and they often give results-such as coloring, deformation, shadow-that I could never have predicted with certainty because their imperfections do not make it possible to calculate.

She always records, portrays and reflects strange stories. She is now working on a new photo novel and a portrait of Flemish women. "Polaroid adds a physical story to the image by itself, and the limited technical capabilities of my equipment restrict me to find my way within these limits and inconsistencies frustrate me as much as it challenges me."

Her work focuses on portraits and an approach to eroticism that is often provocative and blasphemous.
