These photos are part on an ongoing documentary project entitled ‘The Temporaries.’ I aim to explore the modern realm of the words ‘temporary’ and ‘permanent.’ Given the fast-paced times in which we currently live, is what we consider permanent actually permanent, or has what some call the ‘Digital Enlightenment’ begun to symbolically and linguistically morph permanence into the temporary? This is a project of real people living their lives through what seems to be an ongoing tension between temporary and permanence. What is it and how has it changed? I invite viewers to investigate not only the meaning of both words in context to these photos, but also in relation to their own lives.
