When I think about one second, it disappears; when I search retain it, it slips through my hands like sand. This is the moment I remember St. Augustine and his phrase: “What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know”.
However, it does not happen with the photography. At least in one sense. Through a shoot, one is able to freeze time, capture a moment lost in eternity… solve artistically severe metaphysical problem. Perhaps this is why I like photography.
Slurpee Waves is a photographic series by American artist Jonathan Nimerfroth, which adjusts its parameters to immobilize the waves, movement oscillating between being and not being. The result is a different worldview, one that is hidden at the end of time.
