Tim's epigram to the Fiirlefanz show:

    I think this is the prettiest world, so long as
    you don’t mind a little dying —Mary Oliver

Photography is a way to embed oneself in surface realities and a way to see through them, often at the same time. These pictures are about transience, decline and decay, yet, given the implications of cyclic time, also about regeneration and rebirth, which is to say, life. The ice gives way. The barren tree grows green.
