“It is acutely painful for [Sarah Amy Fishlock] that nature renews and overwrites ad infinitum, as do the images that she photographs, re-photographs and elides. In doing this, she calls attention to the friction between photography’s objective indifference and its capacity to ‘detonate,’ as Kracauer puts it, tiny details; the bystander on the beach for example, who (by total chance) holds a bunch of superimposed blooms, as if offering them to the small girl who will have cause, in the future, to grieve but does not know it yet.” Dr. Katherine Parhar • Photomonitor
