I Am Not This Body investigates primary, personal experience, and relies upon the viewer's imagination and memoirs. Barbara Ess is renowned for her uniquely accomplished use of the pinhole camera, and her effort to "photograph what cannot be photographed." Ess 's is a conscious quest to explore what she calls "ambiguous perceptual boundaries: between people, between the self and the not self, between in here and out there." In her view, "reality...includes a perceiver, who has memories, thoughts desires emotions -[which] a normal camera tends to omit". The Strange and affecting images she coaxes from this primitive camera manage to evoke the sublime and the impossible, the textures of d desire and loss.
