“It takes place in an enormous gallery. He put up 300 photos from all over the world, and a visitor, Linda, looks at them. You are going to say to me: “This will be deadly boring.” But this is where all the possible variations of the photos appear, starting with juxtaposition and topic, which multiplies to infinity, and the combinations which are no less infinite between Linda and the photos. Anyway, it is a film which will be never-ending. It hints at the relationships between the photographer and cinema, which are to be explored. For photography, it is fixed time; for film, the time deployed. The photos leave room for the viewer’s imagination. They may stand in front of a photo for ten seconds or ten minutes. But film, by nature, drags the viewer down the filmmaker’s path (...); film must contribute to the photo and not the other way round.” (JDP)
