  • Description

    If Cartier-Bresson’sdecisive moment reflects a situation perfectly in tune with the photographer’s intuition, flawlessly combining the elements of composition and timing, then Ed Kashi’sabandoned moment is the result of an imprecise instant of surrender. This collection of photographs, made over a 40-year period, reveals imprecise glimpses of transitory events filled with frenetic energy – the chaos of everyday life. Embodying photography’s intrinsic power, they preserve moments that can never occur again in exactly the same time and space. When geometry, mood, and possibility unite to unintentionally create something new, the magical and fictional qualities of still photography capture the unplanned essence of existence. In contrast to my journalistic approach of deep personal connection and keen observation, this work is about capturing the untamed energy of a moment with abandon.
