Simon Terrill's Proscenium photobook
Released by Melbourne's brilliant M.33 as part of a new series featuring Jane Burton and Darren Sylvester, Simon Terrill's Proscenium traces his highly cinematic, time-lapse oeuvre through notions of staging and performance. The cameo interlude of a series of portraits featuring the British performance artist and painter Bruce McLean represents the sole inclusion of a choreographed scene. All of the other works reveal an exposure of the world that was directly facing the camera at the time of the image. As with the theatre arch, these still moments of photography invite both a closer inspection of the particular scenes within, and a greater reflection on the performances of everyday life.
