“Witness”, Dan Solomon uses images of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to explore the  nature of photography and memory. By radically cropping stills  from the Zapruder film and the Moorman Polaroid, Solomon isolates and decontexturalizes individuals and groups of figures observing the tragedy from the  historical source material. Contemplating these ethereal figures invites many thoughts: how memories grow dim over time, the reliability of eyewitnesses, the impossibility of a camera capturing reality and how everything adjusts, shifts and changes over time. "Witness" is limited to 500 numbered copies, and includes an original signed photograph by Dan Solomon.
