Ephemeral

EPHEMERAL

The ‘little things’, the ‘little moments’ that we experience and the ‘little decisions’ that we make, define us. Some of these are also made for us unconsciously, building up to who we are, our identity, sexuality and individuality.

This project is about individuals that have migrated to London, their transition into a new environment, as emotional experiences and reflections on the past and what is left behind. There is constant change and almost everything appears to feel ephemeral.

In these photographs the favourite pair of shoes owned by individuals who recently migrated to this country are placed in front of the doors where they live. The shoes act as a self-portrait, the representation of an attachment to materiality, which figures as a lot of their unconscious experiences, and defines their identity.
