    Performance Contained: The Camera as Audience

    You enter your kitchen.  The butterflies are fierce.  A feeling of impending doom.
    You are standing at the edge of a river.  Water swirls.  A cloud hangs low. 
    You leave a room and suddenly know there will be consequences to your actions.  Something’s not right. 

    Someone yells out at you on the street.  You look around, uncertain that they are calling to you.
    Performance and Photography are a formidable pairing.  Many photographers find their muse in the impulse to create and capture performative moments.  The creation of a character, a scene, a moment to monumentalize all hinge on the performance being convincing.  The performer must be completely in the moment for us to believe.

    The power of still imagery to infer a time-based event is utilized by Jay Gould, Jaime E. Johnson, John William Keedy, Heather Stratton, and Melanie Walker to great effect.  The performances are supported with rich details, every object lending credence to the image.   The moments and actions that happened just before and those that will happen next are as important to reading the image as the moment that is captured and displayed.
