A music video that works with the idea of photography as a medium that stops - freezes an event in time. Director Ania Bajorek refers to a project “Girl Pictures, 1997-2002” by an American photographer Justine Kurland who photographed teen girls as outsiders, away from home, on the outskirts of the cities. In “Fire” scenes from Kurland’s photographs are frozen in time and described with a round camera movement.
