If you’re a long time reader of The Buzz, you might remember an intrepid twelve-year-old fashionista named Claire who wrote a couple of guest posts for us (you can read them here and here.) Four years later, Claire is a budding photographer and has recently launched a website featuring her collections. Not only is Claire very good with a camera, she’s equally talented with a pen; her artist statement is the perfect complement to her pictures.
“Life happens quickly. Any given moment begins, changes and ends, sometimes before it’s even noticed. Light shifts, shadows move, dimensions reveal. And in today’s hyper-digital world, so many opportunities to notice these moments are completely lost as our attention is pulled from one “source” to another.”
“As an artist, I use photography to stop time – to capture moments – and to prolong the opportunity to see, explore and immerse oneself in what would otherwise be a transient moment or one altogether unseen. These moments can be serene, jolting, perplexing, funny and beautiful.”
We couldn’t have described Claire’s work better ourselves and we hope you take some time to immerse yourselves in the moments captured by her lens…
