The Ephemerality of the Existence

The Ephemerality of the Existence series was inspired by the Vanities of the Flemish masters of the 16th and 17th century. This ancient paintings show objects representing the time running - clocks, hourglasses - other objects meaning the fragility of life – fruits, flowers, soap bubbles, glasses – and finally jewelries and other precious goods as the human vanities. In this series, I work with the same idea, photographing in black and white my great-great grandfather’s pocket watch with other objects, such as jewelries and flowers.
