I have always been intrigued by the blurring effects that can happen in photography during 'long' exposures with movement. I thought this approach was particularly suitable to explore the notion of 'impermanence'. These three photographs are all representations of the same piece of silver birch woodland at Beacon Hill, just outside Loughborough. Impermanence is implied by the way colours streak and blend, dissolving into each other, eventually going translucent and then transparent. Individual trees blend to become part of a whole, details blur, boundaries melt away.
These images have not been 'digitally manipulated'. They are faithful reproductions of the original transparencies. They were all made using Fujichrome Velvia 50 and printed using Epson permanent inks.
