At No Point In Between prompts inquiry into the antinomy that exists in recorded violence: how documentation of anti-black violence was used to shame black individuals, but how we have used those same images inversely to interrupt the collective belief of a racial hierarchy. Murff accomplishes this by challenging the photographs use as an objective document; addressing the convergence of the physical and social landscape; and reinterpreting complex narratives about race, power, and violence. Creating a collection of images scrutinized in both their historical and contemporary contexts, Murff metaphorically connects the body and the landscape, fast and slow violence. By intertwining witnessing and critical analysis, Murff provides a deeper understanding of systemic white supremacy and the resulting violence therein.
