Motion Portraits

Also called Anicca or Anitya, impermanence is one of the essential doctrines and a part of three marks of existence in Buddhism. The doctrine asserts that all of conditioned existence, without exception, is “transient, evanescent, inconstant”.

All images, both drawn with pastel or created digitally, were generated first as photographs of the subjects in motion. In many cases, multiple photographs of the same subject were overlaid with one another to get the desired effect.
