“What William’s practice has made evident in significant, compelling, and ravishing ways is that photographic meaning is never transparent. The idea that meaning is not transparent in photographs radically alters both our view and our experience of photographs. In William’s work we shift from an understanding of photography as testimonial witness to the world, to a realization that photographs are byproducts of undisclosed forces that alter and determine our relationship to them. In doing so, desire seems to be at the forefront, because desire determines that which is disclosed and that which is hidden.”
Mark Wyse, in Too Drunk to Fuck (On the Anxiety of Photography)
