One of the things you do as a photographer — you stare.
You stare at a single point until you feel yourself beginning to disintegrate and disappear.
'The self of solipsism shrinks to a point of no extension, and there remains the reality co-ordinated with it' (Wittgenstein Tractatus).
Maybe I was subliminally influenced by horror movies like 'The Ring' (2002) and 'Kill List' (2011). An image can have a healing effect. Like a mandala. It can also be toxic — even life threatening — in the hypnotic spell that it casts upon the viewer.
Why look for these images? What's the point? I am not looking for them. They catch me unawares. They pull me in.
