"I think the ‘catastrophic spell of things’ must be commodity and its simplifying and flattening of objects’ properties – which is a large part of what I am calling naming. Photography and the growth of consumer capitalism are so closely tied that to talk about photographs of objects is inevitably to talk about the effects of photography and capitalism on our conception of things at all. Michael Taussig explores this object-line of Benjamin’s ‘mystical Marxism’ in his book Mimesis and Alterity. It is a book which has had an ongoing influence on my thinking. In it, he locates this human activity of mimesis, embodiment through copying, that proposes an object-order and object-value outside of economic or allegorical terms; and instead he places mimesis within an economy of sympathetic magic which is a lot like Adorno’s ‘ur-historical’ here. It also makes me think of Robert Smithson and his repeated reference to George Kubler’s The Shape of Time in his writings and interviews which follow a similar trajectory.”

Photographs by Andrei A. Tarkovsky

"An image

is an impression

of the Truth,

which God

has allowed us

to glimpse

with our 

sightless eyes.”

"But as cellphones and then smartphones became ubiquitous, it became easier to capture a moment, and sometimes a feeling, with an image instead of a wall of text. As a writer, this might in theory make me nervous, but it doesn’t. I think language has some class barriers that image capture does not, and I like the fact that almost anyone can poignantly document their experience and viewpoint without having to learn how to compose a structured essay or write a compelling lede. Not because it’s easier or requires less artistry, but because if you can do it, an image makes an impression (or doesn’t) immediately. And it conveys so much more information so quickly. There are plenty of opportunities to lose/bore/turn off the reader in a written piece. With an image, it’s one powerful shot. Or a collage of images that tell a story impressionistically yet powerfully in a way that text technically can, but rarely does."
