“A location can accumulate other places far away in space and time, and present them” (Latour).
Images travel over time and space, unhinged.
Latour writes of images as having a “mobile immutability” a contradiction involving copies that circulate. My photographs travel even while the image remains fixed. I understand spaces through images I carry (a stable mobility?). Faith in the reality of the image is to my benefit as nature is difficult to pin down.
Memory of place finds ground in an extraction.
I accumulate “optical traces” (Latour).
