The publication I HAVE TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED, named after a quote from Queen Elizabeth II, consists of several pairs of images. The analog photographs on the right side are showing scenes from the city of London, which were taken at the same time as the Queen's state funeral in September 2022. The recordings on the left side are stills from TV broadcasts on YouTube, which were photographed from the screen with a smartphone a few weeks later. These juxtapositions deal with collective mourning, areas of tension in the British monarchy and with reality and deception in connection with photographic images.
