Reference to Emerson and T S Eliot
Photo by Candia Dixon-Stuart
The lengthened shadow of a man is History, said Emerson,
Who had not seen the silhouette
of Sweeney straddled in the sun…
Taken by Candia Dixon-Stuart as he left the NGV, Melbourne, Victoria.
Actually, he then took a photo of me taking one of him and he posted
it on his blog that evening (2015/2016)
I find the blacked out presence in the middle photo foreboding. He is so brave.
New book out.
In this photo I think I captured the tripod hood that the professional
photographer had been using for a photo shoot. It reminded me that
Ai Wei Wei had been seized and a black hood placed over his head.
