SIGHT LINES III: ECLIPSE

About

ECLIPSE was born out of Milton's interest in the photographer Eugene Atget. Work on the image went through many transformations and reversals, until finally settling on Atget's Paris street scene of a crowd watching the hybrid solar eclipse of 1912. It was two days after the sinking of the Titanic. The clock is announcing the two times of the two events on a single face. In homage to Atget, other notable photographers associated with Paris are included in the image. For those who like puzzles, there are various versions of Atget, Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Lartigue, and Stieglitz. Stieglitz, of course is New York, but his photo- secessionist movement was just one more passing shadow in an American eclipse of the fading Paris as the shining center of avant gardishness.
