There are two ways that photographic vision enters Porter’s paintings. The first might be the way that the camera portrays everything within the frame in similar focus (a feat that the human eye cannot achieve). The second is the objective distancing that the camera always achieves and which has the effect of an alienation of the image or a removal of the ‘real’.
