Excerpt, Press Release from “Eileen Neff: Between Us”:
Using the camera, the computer, and the space of the studio, Eileen Neff poetically reconstructs moments experienced outside of them. Clouds move from outdoors to in. Windows appear as apertures onto completely other places. The landscape doubles but does not mirror itself. A blur of motion is bifurcated by one strangely still tree. These arresting images show how unfamiliar the world can be. To cut these moments out of the flow of events and images that daily surround us, Neff uses the camera like scissors.
