Duality and the Photographic Image

-Or- “Another Reason Why I Love Photography”


In the photograph, maybe it’s an absence, of you or of them. Your heart feels a tug, you feel remorse and an anxiety to be done with the looking. The photograph is a reminder that hurts us. It closes doors.

In the photograph, maybe its a moment introduced to a brand-new something you haven’t seen before, yet it feels so familiar … perhaps it could be yours someday. In this moment the photograph is infinite, it takes you through space and time to a new discovery.

In the photograph, maybe its both, a brand-new something that already hurts, you want to go but can’t stop your looking.
