Notes from 'Feel Flows : The Films of Phil Solomon' @ Tate

private made public, but available
non-ironic montage
the compulsion to be with others in language (observation made to someone texting on mobile right after 'Nocturne')
the world ending with water, fire and ice
night photography
lighting as the essence of film
everyone suspect to sentimentality. Hollywood to blame.
economy of gesture
aura as light
night as a field where your eye moves across
