Le Sentiment De L’Éphémère

“What the photograph reproduces to infinity has occured only once: the photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially" - Roland Barthes

”Le Sentiment De L’Éphémère” is a personal project that revolves around the realisation that nothing is forever. The urge to capture - intimate - moments of everyday life came from the this haunting thought, but it wasn’t until the sudden loss of a family member that I started this series.

I think it is a very human thing to do, wanting to keep things close to you by “capturing” them in a photograph; and it is something that people have done for ages. It is also a very paradoxical thing to do: while taking a photograph the moment is already slipping through your fingers. The photograph thereby always refers to the past.

Even though this is a very personal project, the pictures are bound to space nor time, Which creates a certain distance, making it possible for the viewer to identify himself with it.
