"Maisa in the Mirror" 502 Barata Ribeiro Copacabana Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Sometimes photos just appear without any direction and you just have to be savvy enough to see them. This photo appeared and disappeared in a moment. I managed two frames before Maisa noticed me taking pictures and the moment evaporated. The moment of a photograph is transient and moments in life are very ephemeral, it is with photography that we can arrest the relentless assault of time. The image embodies a sensibility of an earlier era though it was taken in 2005.

This image was featured in my recent shows as a 24” x 36” / 60cm x 90cm digital print. Prints available for purchase.
