Investigation / Trace
In criminology, the evidence, or trace-image as it may be called, refers to creating an order to the findings that provides an overview of all of the traces. A trace-image provides information about a crime’s sequence and its offender, and serves as proof of the perpetrator’s offence. Family pictures, photo albums, travel and war photographs represent the basis for such photofilms. The process of perusing photographs in film by means of investigative reconstructions, questioning the non-moving image and examining the details serve not only to secure the evidence, but also for the appeal to convict the perpetrator. These films also reveal how our judgements can be manipulated.
