A Neon Light, El Paso

Noritoshi Hirakawa’s photograph A Neon Light, El Paso, presents the viewer with the most defined narrative of the series of six images available on Sedition. Two girls sit on a bench before a bar, a man facing them both. The scene is set in a specific time (night - it is dark), within a specific place (on a street in front of a bar), with three characters that are all fully in view. The space for interpretation is reduced, and yet, the narrative expanded: what is about to take place between the three characters, and what might have led to this moment? The artist describes the scene as: “a woman who is drunk with her friend waiting for the moment of a man to show up.”
