The project Expo Formis is a collaboration between Lion van den Brand and Jeroen Verschoor. We used different presentation methods to motivate the viewer to experience photography in a different way, compared to how we experience images in everyday life.
To use our presentation methods we traveled to Carrara in Italy to photograph the marble quarries which the region is known for.
We constructed a large viewbox where the viewer can only see a picture through a lens which can be moved over the entire image as if you were inspecting a print. To be able to project large format dia’s we constructed a 4x5” diaprojector to be able to project in very high detail. We also immersed ourselves in stereo-photography, which we combined with the sounds we recorded in the quarries.
The project was exhibited at Salon Drie in Nijmegen and at Host in Amersfoort in 2017.
