FLIGHT OF A SEAGULL

“The true content of a photograph is invisible, for it derives from a play, not with form, but with time.” John Berger

These two images taken from exactly the same position, but separated by an interval of one second, are to be viewed as a large format diptych. They appear to be almost identical, the only perceptible difference being the position of the seagull caught in flight.

This piece formed part of my 'Sea-Pictures' exhibition at Oriel Plas Glyn-Y-Weddw in North Wales, where acclaimed Welsh artist Gareth Parry commented:

"One very notable piece of work was a beautiful diptych with an almost crystallised sea beneath a powder blue sky across which a minuscule gull flew. The changing position of the gull from the left to the right hand image gave the piece yet another, and very unexpected dimension, that of time!".
