I have always been fascinated by time.
Not the passage of time, but rather the stoppage of time. The moments in life when time ceases to exist; when seconds last, and when – for just a little while – the earth stops spinning and the world is reduced to a single breath.
This is most likely why this series of photographs by Pierre Siedel entitled Underground Reflexion resonates with me.
It is in these moments, where time is transcended, that the world blurs around us; that we are able to savour a single second, drawing from it all of the delectable life that it offers up.
For me, these precious moments take some of the sting out of the hours that fly by all too quickly.
A graduate of the Cinema / Image Department of the Institut des Art de Diffusion in Belguim, Pierre Siedel’s full set of Underground Reflexion is available to view and purchase at the Young Gallery.
