“German Photographs” by Patrick Lakey

Whether it has to do with vestiges or with another’s body, we must ask how an object in space can become the speaking trace of an existence, and how, inversely, an intention, a thought, or a project can detach from the personal subject and become visible outside of him in his body and in the environment he constructs. –Merleau-Ponty, “The Perceived World,” Phenomenology of Perception, trans. Donald A. Landes
