All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt. ~ Susan Sontag
Whether I’m walking around the block where I live or strolling on a beach far from home, I feel compelled to photograph moments of time on our wondrous planet.
By abstracting fragments of the greater whole, the body of my work depicts different ways of seeing.
In this portfolio, I want to share my fascination with the often overlooked bits and bobs commonly found on beaches. I hope that viewers will experience a fresh way of seeing typical beach detritus, becoming enchanted with my vision of the ordinary transmuted into the extraordinary.
My photo art portfolio Strands of Time presents 30 of my photos of beach detritus photographed on Vancouver Island.
