Jaya Pelupessy uses photography to investigate the medium’s status. Central to his work are the processes that lead to autonomous images; an examination of to what extent the process itself and the visibility of that process strengthens, invalidates, or delivers new autonomous images. Countless “loops” within his own work emerge, within which reproductions are again reproduced. For this publication, produced in collaboration with graphic designer Hans Gremmen, the making of the book is taken as a starting point. Through a process that entails using five cameras and immediate processing, a document with unexpectedly combined layers is created.

The Special Edition consists of a framed, signed and numbered reproduction sheet and the book itself. Have a look inside my portfolio to see all the prints that are available and send me an e-mail if interested.
Merel Bem wrote a small text about "Srefidensi en de Vlag" in the Volkskrant. Srefidensi en de Vlag is a project I made together with Sara Blokland. It's a project that researches the independence history of Surinam with a focus on its symbols. Have a look at the website to for more info www.srefidensifoto.org. The project is on view at CBK Zuidoost and will be until April 2017
