Nadine’s black & white image, Sands of Time, is part of a conceptual photography series about “showing” time.  She says:  I see sand as flowing.  In this image, the hands are like an hour glass.


Sands of Time was the Ann McKenzie Award winner in the PACC 2016 Annual Competition.  The judges were Lois Shouse and Ron Herman.


The opening reception for we like small things v.4 and another exhibition, Collaborating with the Archive, will take place on September 24 during the 2021 Filter Photo Festival.  Please see the website (link below) for more information.
