It's Safe Behind the Glass
It's Safe Behind the Glass is a title inspired by an enclosure sign at London Zoo. Forming an illustration of time loss, the photographs conceptualise gaps between perceived and physical reality: meticulous human intervention contrasted with natural phenomena. The images alter our perceptions on looking. In this way, they become spectres of memory, slipping before us to show an affected familiar moment - a nod toward the Uncanny. Time has been lost: trapped in these moments, forgotten. The defiled grave, the tree, the phantom limb. An evident omnipresence. The viewer is forced to look between the perceived and the photographic.
