In the 1966 Michelangelo Antonioni film Blow-Up, a photographer by chance discovers a murder captured in one of his photographs. By repeatedly enlarging certain areas in the background, the photographer goes through a process that is at the same time a trial of self-discovery as it is an inspection of the image. What he finds borders between evidence and opinion, objective and subjective – blown-up to near-abstractions, the truth is impossible to pick out, and the final product is both real and illusory. But how can we tell the facts from the illusions?

“Nothing like a little disaster for sorting things out,” the photographer says.
