Sarah Ducker Fragility
Barometer Gallery 2016
New creatures whirl in form non-existence,
Galaxies scattered around their feet
Standing quietly on an ancient mountain in New Zealand, I looked down and discovered quite unexpectedly, such delicacy on the ground. In the seemingly bleak tundra, little parcels of exquisite beauty. I wondered how such infinite fragility could survive in such a hostile environment? By staying close to the ground out of the wind. A metaphor for life.
The present moment exists now and will never come again and can connect deeply to and still our inner lives.
I felt immensely grateful to our precious earth and have tried through my photographs to capture the feeling, mood and atmosphere of that experience and of the profound beauty in the delicate things.
