PART OF SERIES TITLED: Perspectival
The [viewer] is arrested by the invitation to clasp an outstretched hand and is caught in a moment of time when something might happen. ~Scott Brewster
“Perspectival’s” photographic images seem to hold you captive within the parallel, converging lines, but are boundless in the impression of depth and distance. By invitation, charm, and challenge, the images draw your eye to the distance, indicating a door closing, a chance about to be lost, and reminding you this very moment is not timeless. You must consciously pause to be captivated in this very moment within the image.
Being mindful of the moment means taking this time of photographic capture to draw from beyond yourself, beyond where you stand at your start of the bridge, your opening to the sky, your continuance of travel, and your viewing the pinnacle. You will not pass by this exact place again in your life in the same way. You change and your context changes, changing the moment in the image—this moment of your life as you stop to be mindful, meditative, thinking of this moment before what comes next.
“Perspectival’s” monochrome shades join in the simplicity of mediation, reminding us that all that is wonderful in people, the world, and life doesn’t need to be brilliant with a rainbow of colors—the best and most meditative is often found in the simplest of forms or moments. Life goes on, but before you move on, you capture moments of your life like this to consider the perspective of meaning in just being.
