The transient nature of human mortality is explored in these images.
Decaying flowers symbolise the organic body.
Light rays signify the separating entity of the soul.
Referencing such genres as concrete Photography, philosophers as Plato,
psychoanalytical theories such as Freud's death instinct and influenced by symbolic 17th century Dutch flowers paintings.
They express the notion – Memento Mori – Remember you must die.
Finally the end comes
My head bows and gracefully nods
A sideways glance to the past memories remain – interlocked within the soul entwined as an immortal essence
Now we must part
My soul will exist imperishable
As the decay of organic mortality wins
