Two images from Tierney Gearon’s show Explosure at the Phillips de Pury and Company gallery in London last year.

Frame 13 is Goldilocks, innocence and the bears in a verdant wood, by a lake in the mountains.  Frame 18 is looking through time and perhaps not understanding what you will become – from innocence, through a glass to adult preoccupation.

They are beautiful collages about memory and childhood accomplished by double exposure and transparency.

The Roma Journies, images of Roma from France, Greece and Russia by photographer Joakim Eskildsen

The four nails
The legend says:
Four nails were forged
to make the Redeemer die.

They were seen by a daughter of the wind
who passed across the hill
in her travels through the streets of the world.

Just one she took away,
so the soldier didn’t notice.

And thus He was crucified
with three nails only.

The fourth nail joined the suffering of the Sinti to the Redeemer.

The legend says.

Spatzo, Roma poet


Here are three works by the photographer Gregory Crewdson, all untitled, set in the generic suburb, landscapes and portraits, each with strong beams of light.  They question our normative assumptions of what is real by showing meta real events.

The first is of a suburban neighborhood at dusk with stacks of railway ties in the foreground and several porch lights just on for the night.  There are three meta real lights:  the beam, the spot in the forground and the tree in the background.  All three light abjectly uninteresting subjects.

The second is a portrait of a woman perhaps in a dream, in her night clothes, simultaneously in her garden and in her kitchen.  She is a flesh and blood woman, fertile and organized. We see her in a meta real moment: conceivably the police have arrived, but more likely God or the Truth based on the intensity of the light.

The third is a pregnant woman in her yard at dusk in the suburbs, in the kiddy pool which her husband or boyfriend is filling with a hose while a friend sleeps on the lawn nearby.  The spot light is again extra human, like a renaissance annunciation:  a miracle birth in the yard.

Each image presents a narrative that collapses the distance between the banal and the transcendent wherein lies its power.
