Analogon and Scope

After I just happened to be looking back on a few
notes I
plunked down this time last September, I caught wind of
Daily Kos’ entry
predicting Bush’s impending outrage over wide-angle lenses (via).
The set of images is compelling for its amplification of invented moments–the
pose, the emptied site, the performance of sorrow (not that I mean to question
anyone’s convictions, only to point out that the staged scene interpenetrates
the actors, perhaps even mocks them in their vacant, stolid surroundings).
