Philip-Lorca diCorcia is the printed catalog for a retrospective exhibition of his work shown in Germany (2013) at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt.

“And, I’m also sure that things that didn’t seem important get priority over the things which I think as benchmarks, and you know, a sort of bio, you would think would be prominent. It’s like a dream state, you know, there is a bit of cognitive dissonance involved. You know, why are these two people in the same dream. And it seems to me that everybody seems to know that the brain is a constructed device, and that perception is half taught. (“The Storybook Life”) does seem to imitate films. I just wanted to use lights and by default it looks like a film still.” Philip-Lorca diCorcia (http://www.americansuburbx.com/2015/08/philip-lorca-dicorcia-a-storybook-life.html)

“Most photographers use the camera to stop time, but Philip-Lorca diCorcia uses it merely to slow things down. His pictures unfold, sometimes stiffly and mechanically, so that we can think only about his well-known lighting effects. But sometimes his overt manipulations give reality a special, almost baroque, if not religious, intensity, making us doubly aware of the splendor and poignancy of life’s moments as they move toward their inevitable conclusion.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/19/arts/art-in-review-philip-lorca-dicorcia-a-storybook-life.html)
