Decisive Moment

        PROJECTS CONSTRUCTED ABSTRACT BLACK & WHITE COLOUR STATEMENT

A decisive moment appears as an instant of equilibrium, a resolution of the underlying social and political realities.  The recognition of

the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.

The decisive moments depicted here are from significant historical events. The larger black and white image is of the absence of the

events depicted in the film strips.  These images attempt to question how a single photograph can capture such a moment and how a

mundane space can suddenly be transformed into something significant.
