In this oil painting I have depicted the act of capturing images with cameras. And capturing seems the best way of describing it, as if it is a way of throwing a net over an event and hauling it in, thus owning it. Or maybe it’s simply a basic human trait, a desire to conjure images into being. After all it is what I do. Yet I can’t help thinking I take too many, that occasionally I should take a deep breath before reaching for a camera. The painting was also made as a response to reading Guy Debord’s The Society of the Spectacle.
