S. Heiner fine art photography
Inkjet print, approx. 8"x10".
The monkeys in the photo are looking out into the void, i.e., a world empty of any rational, bottom-line meaning. We call out for answers, Camus says, but the universe remains silent. Confronted with this emptiness, they hold on to each other, much in the way, it can be argued, we all do. Yet, between the two animals is a divide, a reminder that in the end, perhaps, they and we are fundamentally alone.
