Transience

Transience

The spaces I photograph are in flux, with elements of either construction or decay. New structures replace natural landscapes while older man-made structures are reclaimed by nature. Transience is a series of images which emerged from antithetical emotions of both enthusiasm and uncertainty. These emotions dominate my life and I often find myself caught in a whirlpool of irresolution. My solitary form is fleeting, anxiously shifting in the scene. By taking long exposures on a 4x5 field camera, I document a transience which persists in both the physical world and my own. I slow down and examine my muddled thoughts while attempting to ground them to ephemeral surroundings. The only constant is change, in the name of Progress.
