A photojournalist’s image is framed and captured, a
moment of high emotion frozen by the camera lens, a distillation of a
larger, often tragic event. Today those events, all too often, are
scenes of physical and emotional devastation in war-torn nations. In
Donald Margulies’ 2009 play, Time Stands Still,
we learn that shooting those images generates addictive adrenaline even
as it hardens the soul.
