The ‘Decisive Moment’, a well-known term associated with Henri Cartier Bresson, relates to a frozen moment, capturing a significant event as a precise organisation of forms.

If capturing the decisive moment is a way of freezing the moment: capturing a slice of time, then what is the antithesis?

Walk is a series of contemporary abstract images that captures the antithesis of the decisive moment.

Not a frozen moment in time, but many moments in one, insignificant, imprecise and disorganised.

Captured whilst walking around Devonport and Narrow Neck, these images are more about the things we don’t see rather than the things we do.

Walk is part of the Auckland Festival of Photography 2018 (Core) programme.

Opening event: Friday 1 June, 5.30pm-7.30pm.
