The Olympic Games were overwhelming. Reflectively looking at insignificant objects, people and events, these images offer an alternate view of the Games - not the spectacular, attractive instances of sports reporting but, just off the edges of the spectacle, an incomplete event, burned out, covered up, out of focus. These images eclipse the Olympics in the same way that the Games eclipsed Athens in August 2004. They do not favor darkness, even temporarily, but seek the silence, distraction and, above all, the sense of imminence that sweeps over the world during an eclipse: the unbearable sense of things just about to happen.
