ABOUT THE WORK
Mandry's work questions the nature of the photographic medium itself and its relationship to perception and representation. In an on–going exploration of geographical territory, he uses various languages from image–making history in order to question the indexical reference so often attributed to photography. His investigations aim to draw attention to the process that leads to a photograph, citing references of archetypal imagery and history of photography. By exaggerating the processes of traditional or contemporary picture making, unexpected shapes start to appear. Set into dialogue, these experimentations are an attempt to give a second meaning to pictures we already know, in expanding what photography can be. More works from the series Unseen Sights are featured in Foam Magazine issue #49 Back to the Future.

In 2020 he was selected for the Foam Talent Award with his body of works “Monuments,” that features in the #58 TALENT magazine issue, as well as the touring collective exhibition.
