In front of the entrance to The Great Hall of Mirrors ( Salle des Miroirs), great part of visitors took pictures standing in the same place, in the same way. Using different equipment, photographing differently. During the 40 minutes of shooting people's hands, I was able to create a gallery which can present the diversity of Versailles' visitors. Miscellany of age, race, culture, style of photographing pushes us to the question: "what's common for all of these people?".
Thousands of people pass that corridor of Louis XIV palace every day. Multiple images are produced. Terabytes of the images weekly.
Moreover, we can look at this occurrence in a wider perspective. Touching the problem of images we are reproducing, what is the reason for taking pictures of objects we saw before. Isn't it just like with the songs we once heard before and therefore we subconsciously like them?
