Our surroundings are in perpetual motion, changing in ways both obvious and imperceptible. The nature of photography is to isolate and preserve the perishable, holding it still in perpetuity. Patterns of growth, decay, and renewal exist at all scales, from the microscopic to the cosmic, from gardens to graffiti. Capturing these fleeting moments is immortality.
