Kigali, Rwanda, 2013, UNIQUE Print
Travel to Kigali, they said, photograph the city's cleanliness.
Kigali is a silent city, muzzled and fearful. It's clean as a whistle, neat, and repressed; citizens avert their eyes and perform their citizenry with throttled flair. A clerk, his forehead bejeweled with minute beads of sweat walks the line with a pink folder.
When I returned home, I pored over the photos, trying to find images in which the muted citizens were looking at me, to pinpoint acknowledgment, the specks around which a photographer's unseen legacy might cohere.
As someone who tries to produce affectless photographs, a place with beat-down detachment was like mecca.
The Black Cat was everywhere.
In trying to produce affectless photographs of a place with no evident soul I had reached Mecca and evaporated. The Black Cat was everywhere.
