"Woman With a Camera (35mm) consists of eighteen consecutive film stills taken from the trailer of the 1978 thriller Eyes of Laura Mars, in which Faye Dunaway plays a fashion photographer who experiences visions of real-life murders while on photo shoots. In Collier's re-photographed presentation, Dunaway slowly lowers her Nikon in a gesture of stunned horror, casting a disquietingly direct gaze at the viewer/reader, who cannot help but feel implicated in this new, more generalized scenario in which the camera becomes a symbol for looking. With an essay by Tom McDonough."
