Photo Performance:
This is a documented conceptual art performance.

Media Analysis:
This project is a part of the series of works focused on the analysis of image-recording media (photography and film), exploring the extreme cases and positions.

Project description:
Two artists place their photo-cameras against each other, ensuring that a firm contact is established and no light can get through.
Three sequential photos are simultaneously taken by both cameras.
The performance is documented by a third person taking photos at the same time.

Visual Output:
Three pairs of bi-directional portraits were taken, resulting in black (monochrome) images.

Visual Presentation:
The work is presented by three sequentially ordered photographs, documenting each stage of the performance.
