All photographs frame the world.
“Framing The World” presents and comments on photographs with internal frames, how they sharpen focus on the world and sharpen viewers’ understanding of viewing—of both the world and photographs. Here are representative selections from the project with only this paragraph of prose as a sample. Frames within the photograph’s frame suggest that the photograph self-consciously occupies art space—close viewing space—and these frames invite analysis, interpretation, and appreciation. Internal frames can attract and resist, reveal or deceive, imply their own limitations. Even imply viewers’ limitations, the cognitive frames through which they process the world.
