Excerpt, Press Release for “Moving/Still”
Previously, Neff’s photographs turned into actual objects, combining furniture or picture frames with landscapes or interiors. In these new works, the complex structures of the installation are embodied in the individual photographs. Working from a conceptual impulse to trigger memory or reflection, Neff’s landscapes pose questions about perception. The seemingly natural landscapes are in fact constructions that allow Neff to question what is seen versus what is imagined. In this group of works, generated from her train photographs, movement and time seem to exist in different states within the same landscape.
