Title: SLEEP – After Dali
Model: MaryChristine

From a larger series in my “Art and Reference” series

“When we define the Photograph as a motionless image, this does not mean only that the figures it represents do not move; it means that they do not (i)emerge(i), do not (i)leave(i): they are anesthetized and fastened down, like butterflies.” ― Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography

*** I think Barthes may have been somewhat cynical towards the camera and did not always see the poetry of the photograph: but that’s my bias towards Roland. GP
