This is a re-installation of an exhibit previously available at MOCA
but now re-sequenced with a new image added. This re-installation seems

Christel Dall originally wrote, "I am a 'compulsive photographer',
working as a photojournalist
for a small daily newspaper in Denmark. I have recently begun
exploring the realm of digital art, after having digitally
enhanced my photos for several years. I work with advertising too,
and sell the odd print once in a while.
I was a hobby photographer for more than ten years before I
turned pro, and I am self-taught both as a writer and photographer.
Born 1965, I am a single mother of a boy aged 5.
I studied philosophy for six years and later multimedia design,
but dropped out. I worked as a nursery gardener, cleaner and
department store decorator. Generally I donīt like talking about myself. Iīm not very interesting.
I pour a lot of emotions into my pictures, but ultimately the viewer
adds his own content. 'We donīt see things as they are - we see them
as we are.' (The Talmud) Besides photography, I love to work with
typography and to incorporate words as compositional elements in
pictures. I can be everything from minimalist to surrealist
depending on where the whim takes me. Adobe Photoshop is my preferred tool."
The images here are cries of communication: letters, missives, messages from the heart.
This is as close as graphics gets to autobiography.
