Afterimage No. 11 - 1982/83 / Sighting Snow

18 June, 2023 - 21:00

To commemorate an exhibition of films and installations by Michael Snow, an entire issue of Afterimage was devoted to an artist regarded by the editors as seminal for his explorations of cinematic time and space. La région centrale is an extraordinary magnum opus for which a specially designed camera mechanism was constructed to move through an infinite variety of movements in recording the landscape of a remote and rugged mountain top. The result is a cinematic experience without parallel.
