Sample text

Greenough et al. 1994: 108) Of course, Greenough’s emphasis on the sequential (“serial”) form suggests also the important relationship between Frank’s still images and his already well-formed interest in film-making, as well as drawing our attention to the multiplicity of possibilities contained in a single image, and hence, to the dialogic structures within Frank’s work, and in particular, his constant battling with the limitations of the single frame—further evidence, it seems to me, to explain the inherent link to Wim Wenders’ work, as we shall explore further.

Wenders treasures a sense of “breathing space” (2001: 206) into which the viewer moves to create their own narrative. In this he shares much with Frank’s photographs, and the invitational narrativity of Edward Hopper’s paintings (to which both their works refer), through which are created moments on the threshold of a story: observing the hotel lobby, nighthawks at the diner or the bored usherette at a New York movie house. As Wenders said in an interview: In a strange way, I can say that I was always more influenced by static art than I ever was by movies—it was my obsession.

In fact contemporary art photography seems to deploy every possible temporality of the still image apart from the “decisive moment”. Preparation and collaboration, often in forms that derive from cinema’s production methods, have eclipsed quick reaction. I am thinking here of the staged tableau, the photo as remake and all the other forms of indirection that preoccupy art photography today. It often seems as if photography has given up instantaneousness in order to reconsider what the idea of the photographic instant really was, or could be.
