begins to see." C. Robert
The hour glass is uniquely suited to the photographer's symbolic language. In it there is both a representation of feminine beauty as well as a vivid reminder that time spares no one. Shoot now: the future is blossoming all around you and the present is vanishing in its wake.
Prints are available for most images. Please inquire via email if you are interested in purchasing one.
The first in a series of images exploring the macbre and taboo.
"I am jealous of the portrait you have painted of me. Why should it keep what I must lose? Every moment that passes takes something from me and gives something to it. Oh, if it were only the other way! If the picture could change, and I could be always what I am now!"
- Oscar Wilde,
The Picture of Dorian Gray
