We don’t think much of it now, the magic of being able to take a photograph– we carry cameras in our back pockets, shoot pictures of our breakfast. But when photography was invented it was such an astonishing feat people truly saw it as witchcraft. Certain cultures today still don’t want their photograph taken because they believe it will steal a sliver of their soul. At the true core of photography is a bit of magic, a bit of defying the ticking clock. Dana Lixenberg’s work poignantly displays that it is in fact an art of stopping time.
