Artists' Statement The projects of Twelve-Tone Photography investigate cross-cultural intersections and explore new visual paradigms enabled by digital photography. These are their two most significant drivers. Cross-cultural investigations We have lived in many countries and been exposed from early on to different cultures. Not only do we pursue our photography without a cultural center of gravity but, in fact, we go one step further by seeking multiple layers and multiple meanings of cultural significance in our photography. Layers and meanings may be intricately connected to a specific cultural heritage, geography, or historical period. We want to capture all this in our photographs. Visual explorations Besides a life-long passion for contemporary classical music - of which twelve-tone technique was the historical initiator, we feel a particularly strong association with it in the context of digital photography . We use digital photography specifically and solely to carry out visual explorations. Much like in music the rejection of tonality, then the use of the tape-recorder, and finally the explosion of the digital age have changed dramatically the grammar and hence the composition paradigms, we strongly believe that digital photography - in the context of visual arts - must follow the same path.
