These are photographs from my newest Series called TIME CAPSULES, 2022. This Collection consists exclusively of Macro Photographs. A set of delicate abstract images that evoke another World, another Time, stored in bubbles that retain memories of a remote Past, evoking a kind of time travel… In my personal research on old family belongings, objects that could speak of my Past, I found 2 hand-blown glass paperweights, one from my father and one from my father-in-law, who left us last year - father figures represented in blocks of blown glass, objects I carry with me as reminders of their presence in my life. Through the lens, I noticed details and properties that could be investigated in Macrophotography. So I started building this New Collection in search of the magical photospheres these objects revealed to me, capturing fragments of the Past contained in these encapsulated worlds.
