Bridge, 2016

This cinemagraph — a combination still photograph with moving image — makes us one with the powerful mass of water as it flows, before our eyes, through the arches of a stone bridge. Jet trails and wispy clouds, shot through with light, also subtly move overhead. The only constants in the image are the solid bridge, stretching to the horizon, and a small island, at left. The combination of the moving water with the solid forms of the bridge and island create a visceral sense of the inexorable flow of time.
