Cut and Paste in Real Life

In the age of Fake News, how can we discern what is real and what is make-believe? There’s a sense of dissonance: our beliefs shape our interpretations of objective facts, which are shaped by what we see and what we believe about them. Alma Haser played with this unrest for her Phases series, which showcases a number of photographs of plants that were folded, cut, and otherwise twisted by hand into a three-dimensional paper sculpture and rephotographed. The flattening of the works on and of paper creates a similar confusion: we can recognize the images exist as two-dimensional records, but there’s a greater sense of space and depth that throws us off.

We previously featured the German-born and London-based photographer for her series The Eureka Effect.
