Out of the Fog
I am not looking for the deceive moment; I am interesting how many moments collate to tell a story. These works explore the concept of still life that is in motion. By studying objects visually as they journey through time, you see their transition through different states of being. Out of the fog of time, I find new forms of beauty, which is not connected to the ideals of the pristine. Flowers wilt, candles melt, apples rot, and wine evaporates; everything degrades. When stepping back and witnessing these events as a whole, from outside of the present, I see the beauty in how the end completes the beginning. The photographs have been created using one single long exposure, ranging from a whole day, to eight weeks in duration. They have been captured on large format 4x5 film cameras using a fogging technique, and this, in itself is a celebration of the aging process.
