Neon Noir Narratives – Heather Schmaedeke

These photographs are pieces of a story that compel participation. The combination of movement and stillness picks up in the middle of a scene. Like our lives, the photographs are pieces of a story, they are not the whole story, but the fragments from which that story is built and grows.
Transience and permanence, capturing the fleeting moments in this series lends them a sense of the permanent; while the environment has some of its permanence shaken loose. Just as the world around us is not as permanent as it seems, we too, are also not as ephemeral.
These images reflect the nuances of this paradox. The seemingly contradictory opposites of concrete and ephemeral, kinetic and static, transient and permanent are not inviolable but permeable and fluid. The story is us and it is larger than us. It is my story, your story, our collective story.
