One can define the pictures of Sarah Ritter first as being on the edge : on the edge of portrait which pays maybe more attention to posture than to face, on the edge of a scenary that refers to space and its pleats.
Image does not account for something, but builts imaginary and projections, suggesting without asserting. Photography becomes a potential of fiction, dramatized. Beyond the photographic depiction, language is then the one of evocation - the one of building a scenery cluttered up with the images' secret.
