Seattle (Fremont), Washington

Believe it, or not, I’ve never seen Casablanca (gasp!). With that said, being a consumer of television and film, I’m thinking I can at least guess that this was a relationship between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman’s characters that was difficult to have. In this photo, you can assume that Bogart and Bergman are on the same wall. They are divided by a block of white that is used for Fremont’s outdoor movie nights during the summer. I was interested in telling the story in two frames. Each frame centers on the character, but each is surrounded by obstructions. Setting up as a diptych was intentional; another barrier to their relationship. I’ll now have to watch it and see if my presumption is correct.
