announcing the winners of the transience challenge
i want to thank everyone who submitted to the transience photo challenge. there were many excellent submissions and i thoroughly enjoyed seeing how each artist rendered the concept of transience in still photography. the strength in our contest winner's image came not only from it's subject matter, but in the technique used for producing the final piece. this series of partially overlapping exposures strings together what may be read as a brief narrative; a transition from an eerie wooded landscape into a cave-like shelter. both atmospheres attesting to the inherent impermanence of our natural world.
the ephemeral quality of objects and spaces has always intrigued me and often finds its way into my own work. it is an underlying truth for all things, though it is more apparent in nature than it is in architecture.
