STATEMENT \ FRAGRANCE OF TIME
As a visual artist, I choose to create photographic images because it provides an opportunity to capture the everyday moments that may go unnoticed by others.
My most recent subject matter looks at the symbolism and meaning of flowers in the occasions of life and death - in celebration, in memory and in mourning.
Fragrance of Time was photographed in a cemetery, beside a memorial site. These images explore the vulnerability and fragility of the human landscape. As with all that lives, these flowers will come to an end in time, but perhaps not all is lost. Perhaps even with the eventual decay of the flowers, the beauty, the sentiment, the purpose…still remains and time is not forgotten.
My photography focuses in on the temporary existence of time and space from moment to moment. By exploring the remnants left behind, I am able to reveal the change and transformation that takes place to shape the surroundings.
