Picture of the Week, May 1, 2014

Cylla von Tiedemann draws your eye to the simple things - which, to render in a photo, are not so simple: negative space, where the light falls (here on the faces of Michelle Monteith and Gregory Prest in Soulpepper's Of Human Bondage), the flash of colour, even how the top of the head is lit without being over lit (read: clearly artificially lit). Then you allow yourself to drink in the details: her hand, the wrinkles in his pants, the chair (another suggestion that this is a real place and not one contained within time and space) - and with the details you tell yourself a story. That's what it's all about, folks: pausing at a photo.
