The photographer’s job is to produce frames for the viewer’s imagination.
Framing isolates what is photographed so that we can see better and also isolates the viewer so that they can dream better.
Tarkovsky’s Zone is another frame where exterior and interior spaces conjoin, interpenetrated by the very material of time itself, made dense by our experience of it, congealing before our very eyes.
In photography, the point of departure is a frame of dead time, resuscitated by the viewer’s breath as they move in close, drawn by its stillness. Such intimacy is only possible with icons and photographs small enough, close enough, to kiss, prints on the same human scale as our journeys.
