‘where the future throws a shadow over the land’

The new prints by Simon Lee for Eve Sussman and Rufus Corporation’s film noir White on White, exemplify the idea of ‘archival footage from the future’. The photographs in this series contain motion, a sense of time speeding by, as the future – implied through a contradictory metaphor of darkness as the past blows out to white – throws a shadow over the land.
