Tilda Swinton can transform into malleable intensities on screen, and even more so in photographs. Without video’s pacing and courting every micro-expression of her craft, the camera captures one spontaneous movement at a time. On screen, Swinton’s character development shows through in economized gesture. In photographs, her gestures are magnified. The economical becomes summary. Interestingly enough, in the films of Derek Jarman, Tilda has that magnification of gesture that precedes inconography, the same quality I see in her photographs, regardless of photographer. But perhaps that is unfair to compare her performances on screen with Jarman with Tilda’s other films: Jarman––unpredictable; Swinton––unimitable.
