Administration by Lali Khalid

"The world and our vision are without clear edges. The photograph is not this way. It frames and isolates. My photographs are a form of pointing. I choose and manipulate what parts of the world end up in these images, but I am never in complete control. To point is not to explain. The content created is not completely closed, or even definable. The settings court a range of intimacy. I have lain on that bed. I have watched the way light fell across that shirt, but any given scene and a photograph of the same scene are not equivalents. To point is not to own. It is not even to speak. To point is to focus and to share. These are images of how the world looked to me, but it is not my world; it is all of ours. Notice the light."
