I was looking for articles about
William Eggleston and found Shane's journal - a great find. So I went on and had a look at Shane Lavalette's photography - and there it was! A series of pictures that I fell in love with immediately. It is a project called "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" - to me these picture have some of the magic that you find in really good photography. A sense of time passing in a still photograph - telling us that the moment is everything.

See some more pictures from the series on 591
