Curtis Mann is a destroyer. In the world of contemporary photography, there are very few who venture into the realm of the beauty in destruction. Mann’s technique involves bleaching C-Prints with certain areas masked out to avoid the manipulation of chemistry. Curtis finds thousands of photographs based on keywords of Middle Eastern wars, poverty and snapshots and tries to break the original photographer’s intention of conveying reality based recordings of events. While photojournalism has always yielded stoic and objective artforms, Mann reasserts the ability to place yourself in the middle of the chaos.
