Who or what creates an image? Is it the machine, the eye, or the mind? Are we truly free to create an image, or do we just visually reproduce preset concepts? When does an image become interesting? Do images create concepts, or should we devise concepts to produce images?

In this case, the images were created spontaneously, challenging us to decode their beauty and interesting meaning. Herzog is a collection of “damaged” photos recovered from a destroyed portable drive.
