Photography is always about time, the passing of time, a capturing of time, the physical manifestation of memory, a framed array of personal meaningful triggers, both a window and a mirror into and of our imaginings.

Three Caves of Desire - Photography, Truth and Reality an Exploration
In an age where the naive trust in the fidelity of the photograph is fractured, image manipulation software enables the production of photographic realism in the complete absence of the physical subject.
The virtual image is now everywhere.
Yet the power of the photograph as a site of truth and reality persists.
This talk will explore the history and nature of our evolving relationship with the projected image/photograph, as we strive to capture 'our slice' of eternity.
