"The motivation underpinning Joachim's photography is a constant questioning of the photographic process. He is interested in its limitations; in particular its reliance on the real world to provide content and context. He is interested in how documentary photography claims to record truth; yet is compromised by the editing decisions. He is interested in why we are suspicious of the veracity of a digital image; yet hold to the belief that the camera never lies."
