“At times, the reflection presented in a photograph seems to be far away, untouchable. Understanding a photograph is simultaneously straightforward and difficult because while a photograph is, strictly speaking, a piece of documentation, it is also a meaningful observation that has been torn from the world. An image of a blade of grass on snow is strictly what is looks like but, at the same time, it is also a black gash across a white background. Tuning in to the atmosphere dictated by the image is essential when viewing a photograph. Like a window, mirror or a screen, the photograph is a prisoner of its frames. Nevertheless, the photograph dictates what we see within its frames.”
