Day Into Night (The Book of Job at the New York State Fair, 2013)

033 034 035 036 037

I was at the New York State Fair reading about Maimonides reading the Book of Job. The discussion has to do with scale, the vicissitudes of human suffering in relation to divine providence and the creaturely world at large. And then I took these photographs, which seemed all of a sudden apropos. The clouds open up to show one last bit of dulling daylight. Hovering over the busy-ness of human affairs, the merging of day into night reflects a different order to the created world, deeper and more immense.
