Visiting Impermanence - Amy Pritchard

While photographing in Prince Edward Island, I was struck by a sign that read that the shoreline was disappearing at a rate of 1 meter per year. During that same trip, I was also struck by the thought that I am ephemeral, and, like the landscape, will eventually disappear. This work explores the impermanence of both the seemingly permanent landscape and me, through long-exposure self-portraits set in areas that are experiencing high levels of erosion. My images are printed on vellum and I apply a gold leaf behind them. Through this process, I capture and present the value of the landscape and its permeability.
