“Jungle Check” is a journey into the jungle guided by Cristina de Middel and Kalev Erickson, two adventurers of the still image who have set out to discover and reinterpret the remains of a past dissolved in the emulsion of a group of Polaroid photos salvaged from a flea market.
Cristina de Middel and Kalev Erickson use a group of anonymous images, discolored with age, of the jungle surrounding the Mexican town of Tulum in order to explore notions of reconstruction and reinterpretation, enriching the images with a visual interplay and a plausible narrative structure that make this archival photography and its potential the starting point of a story and not the final end of photography itself.
