All things fade

8 Sep

Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey created beautiful portraits using an unlikely medium – grass.By planting grass seeds and covering them with custom negatives, the grass grows in varying patches and densities depending on the amount of sunlight the negatives allow.The results are portraits with great detail that slowly, over time, will fade as the grass continues to grow. The concept is quite lovely as the people in the portraits, like the grass, will continue to grow and this snapshot in time will fade.

This man with the wrinkles is my favourite. Each wrinkle is a story and although the portrait may fade, hopefully those memories will endure.
