About The Art and Artist

About the Works

I create artifacts of time. My photographs speak to memories and a webbing of moments made permanent yet malleable in our minds. Some moment stretching and changing over time while others remain forever burned into the substance of our minds. I shoot mostly in film because it requires that I, the artist, slow down and fully integrate with the present while immersing myself in the past. The frames are limited and the moments fleeting. Each previous frame, each lesson learned, and each moment filled with emotions influence the results in the frozen frame. In an age of digital where hundreds of moments become millions of pixels stored with the idea of permanence and yet remaining temporary, film remains a tangible object, an original unchanged moment, an artifact that can be held living on after the spirit has left the body. I encourage conversations with my images. Each viewer brings their own timelines into the discussions. Much like a Rorschach Test different moments in our past influencing what is seen, remaining individual yet melding together into a new moment shared with the artist.  

Thank you for your interest in C Petrie Photography. Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to become a part of the memory-lines.
