Reflections of a working writer and reader
Art, in a sense, is life brought to a standstill, rescued from time. The secret of making it is simple: discard everything that is good enough.

These are certainly amongst the most beautiful photographs I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much for bringing Zineb Sadira’s work to my attention.

I came across your blog while I was googling Zineb Sedira reviews. Zineb has new work on show at The Wapping Project – a solo exhibition called MiddleSea.
It’s a single screen film installation, shot on super 16mm colour film, and a series of photographs and light-boxes. The work is a bit of a departure from her earlier work. It explores a traveller’s poetic and dream-like journey by sea. It’s also a wonderful space.
Runs until 19 October, 12.00-22:30 daily, except Sundays to 17:30hrs.
