The above is in the intro to the photography show I checked out yesterday: Present Tense: Photographs by JoAnn Verburg at the Walker. Temporality? Time. It’s something that is normally frozen in a still photograph, a little less so in a film, but these works really do impose a sense of space and change as you’re viewing them. What a pleasant surprise.
While at the Walker yesterday I also viewed chapters 4 and 5 of the Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman film series by Jennifer Fox. I have to admit, they weren’t what I expected, and frankly I was a little disappointed. It was, however, very good storytelling, and so was worth the time.
