From Old French flux, from Latin fluxus (“flow”).
1620s, from French influx (1540s) or directly from Late Latin influxus “aflowing in”, from past participle stem of influere “to flow in”.
In the book “Ways of Seeing”, John Berger writes:
“Our vision is continually active, continually moving, continually holding things in a circle around itself, constituting what is present to us as we are. Soon after we can see, we are aware that we can also be seen.”
Influx is a photographic diary that attempts to wander inside this continuous motion of picture and vision. A motion generated as much from the transition between the photographic subject and the photographic object as also from the various visual perspectives that we daily experience.
