Passing Through presents light trails photographed at night, visually representing time and movement in its most literal way. By capturing the Earth’s revolution over various periods of time, I’m using photography to display the movement of airplanes throughout the world. The images communicate that mankind is in a constant state of movement; even while one is standing still, the Earth is perpetually in transit. If we boil this train of thought down even further, every cell in our body is in constant motion and transition; essentially we’re never still as humans or as a society.
