Ephemera

All photographs actually depict ephemeral moments in that they arrest time and record that moment as a visual object. You could argue that when viewed on the timescale of history or geology, one person’s activities and the objects that we produce are all ephemeral. All things are transient.

This is a portfolio of images which firstly, explores the fleeting moment; the split second of change or the imminent decay of light, colour and form. A woman passes quickly by on the street in sunshine; a palm shadow moves across a wall; a flock of doves rise up from the ground; a red, autumnal creeper brushes against a rain-slicked window.

Secondly, I also wanted to briefly explore the ephemeral object in a wide sense using both natural forms and man-made objects. A dogwood flower shines at the fall of dusk; a poppy blows in a summer breeze; a worn and discarded red telephone sits on a shelf.
