Frame 313.

Dealey Plaza.  Dallas, TX, March 29, 2014.

The specificity here is bewildering, and becomes its own focal point.  The spot where a bullet struck Kennedy in the head  – with the sixth floor window of the book depository visible above the trees – can be pinpointed on the street only because it was captured on film.  The X, inviting perspective, calls up an historical image, a Weegeean bluntness feeding an appetite for voyeurism.
