“In film the image is relentlessly replaced by the next, through montage we are moved through time and space effortlessly, but we can never remain, can never inhabit the image for long.  A photograph invites meditation, we can move around its world at our leisure, revisit whenever we like.  La Jetée creates an experience between film and photography; it juggles dueling ontologies, allowing meditation while alternately asserting film’s power of displacement.” Mark Alice Durant • Saint Lucy
