Stillness

In silence and movement you can show the reflection of people.
— Marcel Marceau

Stillness

I am fascinated with stillness in my photography. We talk about “capturing a moment” in still frame photography of course, but on an emotional level, stillness is ironically ever-shifting and appears to exist on a continuum - calm, peace, zen, emptiness, melancholy. I find that one of the best ways to represent this photographically is through reflection, and that is my approach in this series. There is the literal mirror image that is created on a surface, but at another level, mirrors are an essential technical element in many camera designs and also provide an ideal metaphor for the process of manipulating light to create images. Reflection can also mean thoughtful contemplation, turning a thought over to examine it from different angles. It is this convergence of language in the literal and conceptual that provides space for the image experience to work.
