From my jury duty...

'This was my other top two choice and it is a completely different kettle of fish. Whilst 'Soporificity' is more immersive then expansive, 'do you believe in magic' (no question mark i note - of course not) is immersive then it pulls another trick. It might drag you in and give you a chair but that chair isn't really there and you end up looking around all confused. It's a photograph about memory - fleetingly improvised. At first look the photograph is confused, it takes you a moment or two to get balanced but then you zone in on the child and the childhood dreams and memories tug. A happy, sun lit day. But then there is another moment of confusion - that sharp white line cuts vertically down; like the dividing line in a film strip and another moment goes by before you realise that you are sat in a car or on a bike. Watching. The voyeurism that is inherent in photography shifts into consciousness and it's really quite icky. What's that about? From innocence to something that feels a bit wrong in the matter of milliseconds. That tonal, and emotional, shift in this photograph is what makes it so wonderfully great. It wrong foots you; makes you think about memories, makes you think about sunlight and then, makes you think about photography and makes you think about yourself.'

Wonderful photograph. The white line down the middle is so wrong it just has to be right. Love the sense of looking in through the blur to a time in the past. I have grown to love that white line.

So nice that you found a time machine and popped back with this for us. Both hope and hopeless reside here.
