Project description: ”Tempus fugit sed anima eterna “
How to show an element that is permanent and present everywhere but invisible?
How to click the time?
One answer would be that it can be captured only through emotions,
reactions of those affected.
You have to turn photography into social study, understand time thanks to people. The
researches are suggesting that the perception of time is different for each depending on
many criteria. Time is relative.
To make this work more understandable, I divideit into 5 parts directly linked to the
1: The perception of time according to age:
"The older we get, the more we love the slow pleasures.” A child loves the
spontaneous enjoyment, that sparkles and explodes because he has no consciousness of the next day.
By the emotion of the hobbies I captured the differences of perception between that little boy lighting on crackers and those old men playing card, waiting for their turn.
2.The perception of time according to social class:
"I'm afraid of tomorrow!"
People in need are more likely to live day by day and see the time
as a struggle. This portrait is expresseing poverty and questionement into the future.
On the contrary the second shot makes you feel ambition. Her pose is a assured almost
haughty. She has time for pleisure.
3.La perception of time according to the species:
"The pace of life depends on its longevity"
A bird will spend one week as a significant part of his life while a
tree does not even feel his circle continuing.
4.La perception of time according to the state of mind:
"Time flies when you are having fun"
Happy people do not see the time passing, they occupy their minds. Those who are bored
feel the same minute as much longer. They trick their languished spirits
with alcohol or narcotics. Losing the knowledge of the first time. This picture
shows musicians expressing the joy of every second
contrasting with the portrait of the girl, alone, look lost, time seems to be suspended from an eternity for her.
5.La perception of time according to location:
"New York never sleeps'
According to where you are living in - the country or city- time cadenceis different.
When a villlage follows the seasons and the sun, a metropolis will never switch off. On this shot of Dubai by night, you see the lightsof unknows life shinning as artificial stars while we can perceive the quietude of this village, which hibernates under the cloak of winter ,waiting for the return of summer .
