An island floats above its reflection out to sea, in the distance it has the appearance of a mouth opening skyward, perhaps chanting. A headland, viewed from the bay at nightfall, darkens to a terrible black void descending quickly upon the horizon. As you draw near though the void dissolves, it fills with details of soil and scrub, or perspective shifts, the mouth distorts and is lost. When the far becomes near it is not the same place. A boundless potentiality collapses. To look into the distance is to make of one world another world. Similarly, figures obscured motion blur could be someone or anyone. They appear as apparitions existing in more than the singular instant in which we are all entrapped. The flow of moments can be realised as both an accumulation and dissipation. These photographs seek to enclose a world that can be perceived, never arrived in.
