The Still Point of the Turning World
Between Photography and Film, Velghe, Elviera, Paperback
The photographic image is imbued with stillness. No movement, no sound, no time. But what happens if you add one of these missing elements? The Still Point of the Turning World focuses on that rare moment in which a photographer turns towards film or a video artist turns towards photography. What beauty can be found on the border between these two media? This photo-filmic book coincides with an exhibition at FOMU, Antwerp, but takes up its own position in this debate. The book shows 24 artists pairing both photographic and filmic works and includes essays by David Campany (UK) and Joachim Naudts (BE).
