Transitionary 9 (Karloff, Kinski, Krystal)

Gussin, Graham
"The Transitionary series is made up of cut photographs from film stills, they bring two or three images together forming a visual collision. I’m interested in the way they come together to form a mix. Gender, genre, gesture and role are merged, coming together to form an image which is in transition between all of these things. In 'Transitionary 9 (Karloff, Kinski, Krystal)' the kind of desire embodied in the three images was the starting point. I like the idea that the spaces of these fictions inhabit each other."
