Issue #12 / Talent / Lieko Shiga

Leiko Shiga's belief in the transcendent power of the photograph verges on the religious. As the printed image reveals itself in the darkroom, Shiga plays with the axis of time, floating with the image before it settles, before it becomes permanent. The act of creating a moment of frozen time is akin to prayer for her. Now it exists: it is evidence.
