The series Remnants is the discovery of two small beings that were left behind and withering away simultaneously on my windowsill. Tattered and curled, the moth and the leaf side by side illustrate the cycle of life and the beginning of returning to the earth.

I shot the series on polaroid film because the subject matter lent itself to the impermanence of the polaroid emulsion. Just as the emulsion is changing, aging, bubbling, and discoloring, so too are the moth and leaf as they descend into dust.
