Encounters • William Lamson

Between 2003 and 2005, I spent three and half months driving around America, searching for subjects that inspire me with wonder. This project is about the experience of first sight, the moment of visual discovery when we encounter something extraordinary. Essential to this encounter is the gap between what we see in a photograph and what we know about it. The result is a definitive unknowable: a subject that is unambiguous and understandable but the details and context of which remain a mystery to the viewer, and in some cases even to me. I hope that these photographs communicate the possibility of making photographs that both represent actual events but also contain their own fictional histories.
