"Charred Cottage Wall" by Hunter Madsen

"Charred Cottage Wall"


"The recognition in an image that has tragically survived an experience, recalling the event more or less clearly, like the undisturbed ashes of an object consumed by flames, the recognition of this object so little representative and so fragile, and its simple identification on the part of the spectator with a similar personal experience, precludes all psycho-analytical classification or assimilation into an arbitrary decorative system." 

      - Man Ray, "The Age of Light"
