It can be assumed that the development of the photographic process and the democratisation of this medium had a decisive influence on modernity and that the effects and changes caused by the further evolution of this medium consistently influence cultural growth.
Since the Pictorial Turn, we can speak of a visual language, which we should both comprehend and master to be able to communicate in a similar way to the spoken word. The Digital Turn transferred the photographic medium into its digital sphere and accelerated its spread to almost infinite dimensions. Nevertheless, the photographic medium has a quality that seems to make it more credible in comparison to the (written) information, which is a concession that needs to be discussed.
The photographic-pictorial medium represents visually coded stories, questions and discussions that can emerge from an origin of reality (imaging process) or a source outside of reality (CGI). By deciding the time component within the medium, a timeless element of photography or a time-dependent element of film is created, whereby it should be noted that this only describes the time component of the spectator of the final work.
Within this field of tension, I consider my exploration of the medium, both as a creator, observer and writer.

Sebastian Albert explores the photographic medium in various ways, works as a freelance photographer and is a member of the FOTOHOF (Salzburg).
