Using slow shutter speeds, I am able to create an illusion of a girl in her youth who is near disappearing into the atmosphere, only for her to manifest into existence yet again. This effect takes place while she leaps into the air while playing with at first an umbrella and second a scarf. Both objects are symbolic of protection from the elements (i.e. wind and rain). The slow shutter speeds capture the girl’s movements and documents her motions in time. Her youthful high-spirited state is thus captured on film.
