George Kuchar experimented with in-camera editing effects more and more in his later career, and Snapshots is no exception. Using a dizzying array of solarizations, wipes and checker board fadeouts, Kuchar creates an unstable visual space that is at once both comedic and hallucinatory. Shifting from person to person and location to location, Snapshots concludes with footage of an equally absurdist Dali-esque photo shoot. While the recorded image is commonly thought to be the representation of reality, Kuchar demonstrates how a simple misapplication of its technical characteristics can entirely obfuscate reality as well.
