Teardrop is a project about life and death. For those of you who read my blog, Death and the Tenth Floor, you might wonder what was happening with this project. After losing an old friend, I set about trying to convey the fragility of life combined with excitement, speed, beauty, darkness and light.
When combined, the images represent the journey through life, leading eventually into darkness, but beyond. Using difficult focal points on a moving object, water on glass in this case, this series only took 1 second to capture, as I was shooting at 7 frames per second. This represents the shortness of life, and how long it takes for a teardrop to roll down a cheek. I only chose 5 rather than 7 to represent the 5 decades my friend lived. Water in motion was the only way I thought I could demonstrate the excitement of a fast paced yet full life.
