‘Suspension’ is a project that explores how black and white, analogue photography can operate as memento mori while examining fragments of personal escapism and youth. While utilising aspects of snapshot photography, the project’s observational documentary notions help create narrative from the fragments of my daily life and experiences. An emphasis on the printed form of photography and the chemical processes demonstrates an intimacy and physicality that can not be achieved through modern technologies. The photographs serve as memento mori for the short-lived moments, reminding us of a chosen time while simultaneously referencing the inevitability of mortality.
