Photography was the best way to approach the idea of representing this "collapse of time in between" the past and the present. Any other form of art would have merely been an artful representation. The photograph makes it feel real, something tangible. The images are combined so seemlessly that they really make the audience question what existed in the original archived photo and what's been added. Sarah's claim of representing the "collapse of time in between" was extremely successful. Take the image directly below: you forget about the 80 or 90 years that exists between these characters and they exist only together in this image.
Each image is so rich in detail that they keep the audience engaged. Your eye continually moves around, questioning what is old and what is new. It's quite playful in this way and very enjoyable. On top of everything, the quality of the prints are fantastic and everything is displayed beautifully. The old style of the frame with the contrast of being painted stark white is a perfect compliment to the images. The amount of images is perfect, too. There aren't too many that they become undervalued yet not too few that you wish there were more.
Overall, I found Sarah's show extremely successful in what she set out to do. Not only was the idea well carried out but the whole show was very technically accomplished.
