Photography is intrinsic performance, in short, photography is weird.

Lenscraft:Jessica Eaton Asks Us to Think About What We See
As critic Gabrielle Moser has noted: “It’s hard to discern just what we’re seeing in some of Eaton’s images. They encourage a prolonged process of contemplation, asking us to think about how we, and the camera, see. If we’re accustomed to seeing photographs as images frozen in time, Eaton’s works wriggle loose, teasing the eye with their refusal to stay fixed.”
