Striving for Imperfection
“Striving for Imperfection”
Quasi-Reality in a Post-Truth World
Verisimilar Images
by
Christopher Cristóbal Newberry

Today we live in a ‘post-truth’ world where facts are altered and obfuscated. Christopher Newberry produces images which appear to be real or true, but are not. They are what viewers want to see or think they see. They are not what they seem. The images must be scrutinised. They are not truthful. They are platonic views, idealised views – a quasi-reality. They are verisimilar: they seem real, but are not. The original photos have become verisimilar images – not truthful ones.
