L A N G
Lang is an analog photographer, fascinated by the potentials of this unique medium. Unlike other visual arts, photography records something that has once existed. It is not an interpretation of a thing but its evidential impression. Photography, however, still falls short at documentation with absolute fidelity. These two properties make photography a contingency; neither completely true nor false. Embracing this core principle of photography, Lang works within this liminal space of contingency, creating photographs that raise questions about the medium’s journalistic and documentary aspects.
In 2020 Lang was awarded the Thomas George Artist Grant which funded his cross-country trip to work on “Manifest Content”, a surrealist darkroom photography project. He was awarded an artist residency at TYPA, a historic print and paper museum in Tartu, Estonia. While there, he was commissioned for an environmental project with the Estonian University of Life Sciences.
