“[Chris] Marker’s goal is not a perfectly composed surreptitious image, but instead it was to capture what he called ‘the everlasting face of solitude.’  Unlike Sontag or Barthes, he does not correlate the photographic act with death or violence, but with loneliness.  For Marker the photograph is both a declaration of, and a defense against, solitude.” Mark Alice Durant • Saint Lucy
