by Elizabeth Avedon: Independent Curator; Editor, L’Oeil de la Photographie
The title of this publication is from a beautiful and seductive quote by Daido Moriyama: "If you were to ask me to define a photograph in a few words, I would say it is “a fossil of light and time.”

Moriyama continues to be such an instrumental figure in the art of the photo book, it seems only natural to base this publication on his use of the interplay between extremes of the real and the ideal; bold, stark unpredictable images of life in the streets and in anonymous places. DCCP's "fossils of light + time" exhibition speaks to that space between images not yet taken – memory and photography captured in a 30th of a second. – Elizabeth Avedon
