Hannah-Marie Hayes photographs from ‘There Will Be Time’ speak of age outside time, of youth, of long lost Summer days and meandering lives that follow the currents of the river, the destination as yet unknown.
These images connect us into the natural world, each photograph instilled with a sense of calmness and solitude, tranquillity and harmony, her pictures giving substance to a world that exists outside the chaos of our materialist technocracies, a place that gives us space to ponder, muse, think, understand one another on a deeper and more profound level. Perhaps its the mood i’m in but the simplicity and divine purpose of these photographs is stark. They tell us to leave the trappings of our consumer demented society and head for the hills, head away, out of time and into space. There is more to life if only we look beyond the narrow horizon of our ambitions and our desire to consume everything infront of us.
So next time you need to visualise a place to escape too, next time you need to look beyond your concrete walls have a look at these photographs and fly, fly away. Better yet go do it yourself.
There is very little about Hannah-Marie Hayes online. I only know that she’s a young photographer from Vermont.
