Let’s not get too curled up and cosy with the status quo. Things change. And while it may be comfortable to romanticise the past, or live in the now, or look forward to the future, each of these perspectives takes for granted that points in time are fixed. A photo likewise gives us this impression: it suspends a moment so that we may better examine or appreciate it.
GUP#56 has the theme of Transition, and features an interview with David LaChapelle about trying to take Jesus back from the Fundamentalists, and Audrey Tautou on the (un)importance of having a famous face as a photographer.
