The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.
This self-portrait was taken during Covid in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. There is a feeling of loneliness and sadness in the image. The tunnel makes it more mysterious and the "I Am," written on each stair, reminds me of Descartes's famous quote "I think, therefore I am." The image is a statement about the isolation and reflection everyone experienced during Covid.
