EPHEMERA

PhotographerAlan Chimacoff
Entry Description

The title of the series of photographs, EPHEMERA, implies the fleeting impermanence of each image, regardless whether the image is of something impermanent or something physical and tangible. Every photograph captures a moment and arrests it in time. Some of these EPHEMERA vanish in a fraction of a second--the internal explosions of fireworks--while others are physically real but only appear to be momentary and impermanent--a suspended sculpture in a building atrium--the headlight of a vehicle. Simultaneously, they are what they are and they are what they are not.
