Heads

Clinical subjectivity, a construct; a consciously, precisely set-up situation.

"31 people's faces: tight closeup (10:1 zoom lens head on stare.) Movement happens against the strict construct. The realness is within the framework as set up and defined, a non-illusory use of film structure and film situation." -P.G., 1970.
