Selection by Weber

Which pictures matter? In a way, they all do. But not only is selection an integral part of the curating process, it is something that indeed happens naturally. Combinations that in my view were just meant to be, may be forever puzzling to others. I left a lot of favourite photographs behind in the digital pool I was allowed to pick from, while others obviously were given significance. My decisions, based on a whim or on stories I told myself, are personal, and I want to thank the photographers who allowed me to express them by re-combining their work. While I was having fun selecting, they were already preparing to let go their idea of context.
