Frozen moments

Frozen moments, 5’53’’, DV, col, stereo, PAL, 2002; music: Jan van Hasselt

A group photo at a baptism is stopped in the moment the flash goes off. A video about photography as a ritual and the simultaneity of speed and stillness of the electronic image. Everybody tries to look good for that moment, hoping to look good for eternity.
