The transformation of a place from concrete to ephemeral, the elements that elevate a scene from everyday to extraordinary, are the images that fill this portfolio. The photographs are pieces of a story, not the whole story, but the fragments from which that story is built and grows.
It is my story, your story, our collective story. The stories inform our lives, how we see each other, how we see ourselves, and make sense of the world around us. Daily, we write the story of our city, our country, and our world.
Each photo is a dynamic image built from a combination of movement and stillness that picks up in the middle of a scene. Some scenes are hiding out in the open on the streets.
Transience and permanence, fleeting moments: here they are. They have lent a sense of the permanent, while the environment has some of its permanence shaken loose. The world around us is not as stable as it seems, and we, too, are not as ephemeral.
The seemingly contradictory opposites of concrete and ephemeral, kinetic and static, transient and permanent are not inviolable but mutable and fluid.
The story is about us, and it is somewhat larger than us.
