Unease

Lawrence Bridges

Solo things, sad things alone, fresh things headed for destruction in the dark, the loneliness of months of confinement against disease, harm to others, one’s own death, this is what these five photographs represent. In a word: unease. These photos reveal our aloneness when time freezes. They catch us in our alienation from the world. We are all orphans in an unfriendly reality except in moments we can capture and feel alive briefly, in the time it takes for the shutter to click and light to find us.
