‘It was always my intention that The Frieze should be housed in a room that would provide a suitable architectural frame for it.’ Edvard Munch

In each of these photographs, the contents of the visual field are ordered within frames drawn variously in mass, colour, light and shadow. At a range of scales — from the housing for a single candle to a series of empty choir stalls awaiting population — the effect of each frame is to locate individual entities in space, while also directing the eye of the onlooker to a point of quiet focus.
