His work reminded me of something I did a few years ago and the dream like aesthetic that he is working with is also something of a parallel to earlier work but also to the work I am doing now. Does photography draw out a moment? or does it break up time, fracture and slice it.

Philospher Henri Bergson known for his work on the long ue duree or pure time believed that “rather than describe time……… snapshots cut into it, separating it from the perpetual flow(Groom, 2013, p.23).
