Taking a photograph does not produce a dynamic record, in the sense that we don’t get to gather knowledge of the state of a subject immediately before or after capturing an image. When we take photos we are recording spatial information, qualities such as position and texture, at a single moment within a series of moments. The static image often reveals characteristics we might otherwise miss when observing the same moment in real time. Because of this I imagine a photograph is not only a composition but a composition as the photographer saw it just before taking the photo plus an element of randomness in the moment that the photo was captured. I feel that exciting photographic art comes from and evolves through exploration of uncontrolled parts of the work such as this.
