Describe the photograph selected for One Hour Photo in three words:
1977, Finally, Over

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
I searched through my vast volume of images, looking for one that I’ve always enjoyed seeing through the years, but had not ever shown it to anyone else. I felt that the image chosen for the One Hour Photo show, “1977 Is Finally Over” would be greatly admired during the one hour allotted for exhibition, bringing joy as well as questions – the story behind the image.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
During the last half decade I had being reviewing, printing and exhibiting and publishing my work, including images that were made more than 30 years ago. In my mind’s eye, I still feel like that teenage kid taking all those pictures. By choosing “1977 Is Finally Over” as the image for the One Hour Photo show, I am giving my mind’s eye a good, strong new set of eyeglasses.

2-3pm: Andreas Vesterlund

Describe the photograph selected for One Hour Photo in three words:
Hazy little girl

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
I knew I had to make a photograph specifically for the exhibition. My work deals with transitory places and the passing of time, so the one-hour theme fit me perfectly. This photograph is connected to an ongoing project in which I use several different photos to construct new images. Since this is a scene that never actually happened, in some sense showing it for even an hour in gives the image more of an existence than it had in real life.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
Since I made my image only to be shown like this, in this specific exhibition, letting go is a part of its lifespan. The girl in the photograph enters the space, dwelling there for a short moment, not unlike the way my image briefly enters the exhibition space and then disappears. This quality of moment-in-the-moment only enhances my original intention.

3-4pm: Rosalyn Song

Describe the photograph selected for One Hour Photo in three words:
instant, vanish, unexpected.

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
I would select a photograph that would best represent the ideology of the One Hour Photo project, that photographs are snapshots of fleeting moments in time.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
A little sad, but overall happy to be part of this project.
