Photography by Jenna Tomlin


1996                    2011


The meaning suddenly changes so completely; separating the image from the moment, to become something new.  Time seems to stands still for awhile when the photograph is viewed.  The capture of beauty and ugliness for a new purpose; the mundane transformed into an image to ponder.


Photographs allows one to be nostalgic, or to find details that you never found before.  Like the pages of a good book, a picture can transport one to another time and place.  Through the jungles and peoples of Borneo or the streets of London fifty years ago, a picture can be a portal into an idea or a world.  A photograph can capture the stillness or movement of a moment; something not seen in the action, but develops into clarity on film.
