PRODUCTION STILLS may be the most elegant of Fisher's early films. In a single, continuous, roll-long shot, we see at first a blank screen (actually a portion of a white wall) and a flash of light; then, after thirty seconds or so, hands enter the image and mount a black-and-white Polaroid photograph in the center of the image: this photograph, and the seven which are subsequently mounted, one at a time, in the same way, reveal the procedure we are apparently seeing the results of.
