Diana C. Stoll
During one of his frequent stops at the dusty city of Perpignan, in southwestern France close to the Spanish border, Salvador DalÍ had a distinctly DalÍesque epiphany regarding the train station. “Suddenly, everything became sparklingly clear,” he is reported to have said of the city’s gare:

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes—just sometimes— one photograph or a group of them can lure our senses into awareness. Much depends upon the viewer; in some, photographs can summon enough emotion to be a catalyst to thought.

Barbara Ehrenreich
You have to be pretty gung-ho anti-death penalty to care about the execution of a serial killer like Darrell Rich, a.k.a. Young Elk, who murdered three women and a little girl during a two-month spree in 1978, adding in some torture, sodomy, and rape.

MICHAEL TRACY’S RITES OF PASSAGE

EDWARD LEFFINGWELL
At some point far into the unfinished editing process of the new Michael Tracy film, now called Antique Gamboge Deep, there is a healing ceremony shot in a curandera's shack in the mountains of Guanajuato, Mexico. The sequence begins with a carefully framed establishing shot of the building’s exterior, focusing on a pair of battered gates crossed diagonally with rough lumber in the form of an X.

This series is a search for a certain kind of light and atmosphere that I knew as a little boy. The house in which I was born and grew up was demolished when I was nine years old because my parents, who had a clothing shop, needed a bigger workspace and a more modern house to live in.

Lyle Rexer
If you think of the art of our time as a large and crowded room, you’ll find Chuck Close in a corner. That’s where he inevitably backs himself—and the narrower the better—just to _ see how he’ll get out. Since the 1960s, when he first arrived in New York City, Close has sought freedom in constraint and beauty at the limits of form.

The curtains are closed. There is nothing to see. Outside the temperature idles at about 110 degrees. The Arizona prison hunkers just across the road, an ancient colony of cages surrounded by fields all wrapped in a cyclone fence topped by concertina wire.

We live in strange times with regard to what's referred to in this issue as the devoir de voir-our right, our duty to see. Recently, after the installation of an exhibition of a major photographer's work, it was determined by the host muse um that a warning label-an "advisory"-would be placed at the entrance to the show, alerting potential viewers to the exhibition’s “adult content.”

RoseLee Goldberg
Look carefully at the photo credits on these pages and you will notice that all the photographs are of Laurie Anderson, not by Laurie Anderson. Yet each element of each photograph—its color, light, shape, overall design, as well as content— has been entirely constructed by Anderson herself, one of the world’s foremost performance artists, whose large-scale multidisciplinary productions, which depend on thousands of photographic images per performance, have been mesmerizing audiences for more than twenty years.

FACES AND THEIR LOOKALIKES IN THE HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY
[no value]
[no value]
Max Kozloff
In the world of surfaces, the face remains supreme. For we often imagine that it’s an indispensable guide, or perhaps even a reflection of our humanity. Yet in the world of meanings, the face exists only as a sign, perceived through its shifting aspects and its equivocal mien.

Evans’s strain of retrospective admiration for Puritan fortitude is easily misread as a stoic answer to the hardscrabble 1930s. While he soberly recognized the trials of deprivation, and suffered them himself, he also welcomed the Depression as a rebuke to the false materialism of the 1920s.

An image made up entirely of words? That may sound like a magician’s sleight of hand, and in many ways it is, except that even its cleverest practitioners do not know all its secrets. For instance, how many words are necessary to do the trick? It does not have to be many, but when they do their work, something or someone we have never met before suddenly materializes before us....
