Making Allowances


Petersen puts himself in intimate situations with people, framing so tightly as to cut off their hands and feet, or parts of their face. He takes the same approach with animals and object: a length of pipe, a cluster of mushrooms, a window display of pliers and scissors make the most mundane objects stand out. The photographer, in his books and exhibitions, juxtaposes the bodies of human and animal , combining the artefactual and the organic, not as product of a philosophical reflection, but as a dialogue in images. Visual relation creates a rhythm and a structure, a deconstructed narrative that leaves the horizon open for the viewer’s imagination. “Without the audience, the readers, there are no stories. The reader makes the story through the act of reading. […] Photography tells stories one way or another.”
