MYTH PAR SARAH IREMONGER
Myths‘ is a series photographs, which explore the area between the still images of photography and the moving images of video. They represent a romantic notion of the past, especially associated with childhood. The work is spontaneous in nature, nothing is staged, the children are being themselves and often avoiding the process of being photographed at all. Caught in a twilight zone between stillness and movement they have become a metaphor for our relationship with the past and the sense of fragility and transience that relationship engenders. The photographs are of Daniel Murray, Theo and Noah Donnelly.
