PHOTOGRAPHY / POÉSIE EN MOUVEMENT
PHOTOGRAPHY / POÉSIE POUR POUVOIR
The contemporary violence of the image is one linked to its transparency, because that is what is expected of it, that everything must be seen. The image (particularly digital) is the realm of this visibility. However, it is also a vanishing point, of beings, secrets, and the ‘unseen’.
The Nightjar's life can be so short that they have a simultaneous awareness of all temporality – they experience all time of their existence in one instant. And when this bird meets the love of his life, he becomes both happy and sad; happy because he loves and is loved, and sad because he knows that it is already over. The female, after laying, broods her eggs in her mouth. When they hatch, she dies.
