"And Spring Again" Photographs by Lucia Fainzilber
Presented in a consecutive order intended to display an index of seasons, these photographs can also be read as allegorical documents of time. An organic line pierces through across these photographs indicating changing seasons, a cycle of perpetual renewal in which flowers blossom, age and perish, but are ultimately replaced by fresher substitutes. From a studio self-portrait in which figure and background are almost undistinguishable, to the contrasting autumnal palette outside; from the frosty indifference of long winters, back to self-portrait, and spring again.
