Stepping across boundaries: The solitude of a single sole bears witness.


“What we see in each picture are two images, one which Wall builds and the second which we invent in an instant, depending on what we saw on television that day, what article we read, what argument we participated in. As viewers, we find ourselves in a fragile place, a conflicted moment when stereotype and predisposition rush to finish sentences that never had beginnings.” Collier Schorr Parkett No. 49, 1997
