A series of photos taken in Iceland.
About 'Years and Years'
Time casts shadows. Shadows tell time. Years and years on end.
Time leaves memories and definitions on things we know, and they all become shadows in the end. People seek for timely information in objects -- the date of a photograph, the time of the day, the hours of the time. If all the things in the world are given a definite value base on time, then is it safe to say that we might lose all meanings to all objects without the concept of time? Then wouldn't tomorrow become today? And yesterday never leaves? Then, what does today become?
The project serves as an answer to the questions posed above, and explores the theme of timelessness through icelandic landscapes. The body of work reveals a contemplation of time, and of future and past. Through the dream-like terrains, embodying common natural elements such as water, mountain and sky, this series of photographs urges us to look for clues of time through its timelessness. It's the absence of time that commands the presence of shadow. And through the shadow we tell the time; This very cycle, of realizing and forgetting, having and losing, knowing and not knowing, lands the project in the grey zone in between, floating as you would in the dream, except that you're looking at it right now. With the stories told through the magical landscapes in this series, it calls for a justification of reality and a re-evaluation of time.
