When we were waiting for the lift to leave, I snapped the photo of people behind frosted glass, sitting in the Members bar with their drinks and food. It made me reflect on photography, particularly on the exhibition I saw.
Photography is so many things and has evolved since its inception. One aspect I am drawn to with photography is that it captures moments in life – impressions of the present. The fleeting moment. The exhibition I had been to was about conflict and the years following. It showed the viewer the impact of war and how things change in the following years.
Whatever the subject matter, I often like to go back to places I have been and photograph it again, particularly after a period of time. Places change. People change. The constant in life is change.
Photography can capture the impressions of a moment, a part of a story - however fleeting.
