“The frame exists for the image.
The image exists for the frame.”
It’s an ongoing conflict, a never ending conversation.
So you listen. Patiently.
Sometimes, you hear a silence.
It is the signal you have waiting for.
Frame and image embrace.
Pay attention. Focus.
It only happens once.
Every time you visit the garden, you make a record.
You examine the evidence later, to make sense of what happened.
You are the witness.
You are grateful.
You’ve done your job.
Mia Blumentritt, Visual Anthropologist (from the essay “Which Came First, the Image or the Frame?”)
