Notes, Thoughts, and Observations
It is not with ideas but with light that photographs are made.
‘Live up to the light thou hast, and more will be granted thee’ - Quaker adage
Whatever has gone
Leaves something in its passing
From light to shadow
Catching shadows, photography approaches life, at a distance.
Shadows are to photographs as silence is to music.
A slowing of the gaze to a moment of pregnant stillness.
The photograph might be considered a form of friction, or static electricity, produced as one optically brushes with reality. If so, the effect that best captures the essence of photography is blurring.
A dynamic of capture and escape between still and moving images.
Cinema and photography: the bruising contact between movement and stillness, experience and memory.
Drifting in and out of words and images, suspended between them.
