Extended Frames

Extended Frames

This is the first book of an extraordinary young photographer whose extension of the frame gives the image its play in time and returns it to its connection with Event. Taking as object the experimental performances of Co-Accident, a Baltimore-based group of poets, musicians, and "theatricians" that is having its own impact on international performance art, Sue Abramson allows the photographic image to register the disciplined free behavior of people moving in light. The result is an amplification of those photographic possibilities opened up and given mastery by the late Barbara Blondeau, and shows that when the fixed image travels beyond the fixed frame it can become both abstract and cinematic. Person is objectified by multiplicity, and object is personified in the specific character of its movement. Eye and mind grow larger together as they interact at the point where hand controls lens. -- George Quasha
