A suspended moment.

A few years ago, I realized I had never captured her on film.
It was important to me for some reason.
So I started shooting film again.

I look at these images now, and follow the path of light:
originating from the late afternoon sun,
filtering through the window,
touching her face before reflecting off,
traversing the distance between us,
bending in the glass elements of a lens,
and finally etching her image onto an organic emulsion.
The film, like the viewer, is forever altered.
And it all happens in a fraction of a second — just like growing up.
