Time passes in a linear flow, one second followed by another and another each passing through an irrevocable portal to become the past. But when we return to time through daydreams and memories, events blur and flow over each other like pigments in swirling water.
In my memories of events past images are fugitive and constantly evade the grasp of sharp focus. Faces of friends appear in peripheral vision yet transform and evaporate like miasma as soon as my mind’s eye is turned upon them. What I recall is more sensation, texture and after taste rather than a true recollection.
I try to convey that sense of memory in these photographs. Images swirl, replicate and are averaged over time. Some photographs offer a crystal clear snapshot of some past moment. These are not they.
