Born 2 Rave
"You may find yourself at the party, alongside someone you might like, dancing. What follows is academic. Melody, harmony, propulsion, inebriation, a kiss. Composition and decomposition, focus and blur. Sublimation. The hangover, the workweek. The weekend again, maybe you see someone you like.
If you could, you would take a pill and feel all at once all of life’s offerings. In lieu of that, you might take a camera and shoot everything. The slow accretion of a body of work in photography is the antithesis of a singular moment of ecstasy, though both drugs and film can be usefully conceived of as mediating substances. But where drugs always wear off, the impression of a truly potent image has much longer-lasting and farther-reaching effects. "
