Quantum theory has demonstrated that the universe (and everything in it) is characterized only by probabilities that can be interpreted as purely subjective—that is, they refer to what we observe. The act of observing seems to denote a consciousness unique to each observer, regardless of whether that observer is (in this case) an artist, the subject (animate or inanimate) being observed, or a viewer in a gallery.
Is the observer essential to the existence of the physical universe? How much influence do observers exert on events? Regardless of scientific and/or philosophical theories, frozen moments can be beautiful.
Four photographers explore the concept of the “observer effect” as it applies to their work.
