The Momentary Present

[by David Wharton]  “The images in this series observe the often uneasy fit between past and future, capturing a moment where tradition and modernity unexpectedly meet. This momentary present, reconciled sometimes in humor, sometimes in pathos, reveals the ways in which a region’s past always inflects its present, its present inflects its future, and so on in a continuous cycle. Through still photography, we can artificially pause this flow and preserve these moments for the sake of memory and study and for clues to what the future might bring.”
