For years Michael Meyersfeld has been taking photographs that required planning, even a level of 'staging', to create the images he became famous for, images with a strong narrative basis. His experience and success in advertising contributed to these representations of recognizable scenes and events. Gradually the representational made way for pictures that happened without planning, intuitive images that could be read as abstractions, as less representational, less reliant on meaning and understanding, more inclined to be felt, to be experienced. Meyersfeld's recent pictures require a different type of eye, not the eye indoctrinated to understand, to fathom, to find a narrative. With an eye liberated from the dominant quest to find and attach meaning, more faculties, other than just the cerebral, are employed to sense and experience form, shape, texture, play of light, distance, connections and conversations between the photographs.
