Captured for Eternity

Captured for Eternity

5″ x 17″  Captured for Eternity is an assemblage piece in honor of photography. For those who remember actual film. The base was a candle tray, found at Goodwill. Lining it are photo negatives from my own stash. I was a photog fanatic back in high school and college. The Brownie camera is one I’d picked up at a junk shop: an icon of American photo taking. The pictures are from an antique photo album I’d found at a small shop a couple of years ago, just for projects such as this. I love the feel of them, the family love they embody, the innocence.

The quote around the edge is credited to Brigitte Bardot: “A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity, that will never cease looking back at you.”
