The work in Technical Compositions stems from photographer Chris Wiley’s “distrust in the photograph’s beguiling resemblance to the real”. The images in the book approach the photographic frame not as a window into the world, but as a box in which the world is arranged. They are created rather than captured. As Wiley puts it: “Making a picture with this in mind renders the photograph into a still and quiet object, one that ossifies a moment of attention. Not attention that refers, pointedly, to anything beyond itself, but merely one that begs an awareness of its very attentiveness. The picture exists to say: look.”
