Documenting Time
We're recording a slice of time each time we photograph a moment. Photographers have the ability to suspend a moment in time.

Many moments can never be captured again, and it's necessary to capture split seconds. Expressions of the human face, for instance, are fleeting seconds. Recording time can also be the moments of capturing the speed of the subject, or stopping the clock in a timeless scenery.

Documentary photographers are recording time. Moments of civil upheaval demand quick reflexes. Urban street photography requires a photographer's wits about them.

Urban photographers capturing the final remnants of abandoned places have little time in most cases, on location, and in the likelihood the structure may be removed at any time.

But recording time can be as unassuming as capturing the seasons and the hours of shifting light. It is true that time never stops providing the photographer with endless change all around them, even in the simplest, humblest moments and subjects.

Humble moments taken close to home can make some of the best photography. Many of these moments allow the photographer time to revisit the subject multiple times rendering a new perspective each and every visit.

You can never take enough captures. Capturing the same image over extended periods of time through the seasons, years, or changes in lighting allows the photographer to grow intimate with the subject and discover something new each time.

My abandoned car photographs are just this premise, visiting in the change of seasons.

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.
