ARTIST RESUME — SCOTT NELSON

STATEMENT: I’m fascinated by time and man’s relative understanding of it. The most accepted belief is that time is an endless one-way stream. Once a moment passes, it will never be repeated again in exactly the same way. When I’m making photographs, I might choose to put myself in a faraway and exotic place, or a few steps from my front door — that’s just geography. But wherever I am, when I ready myself to take that picture, I step into the flowing stream and pick my moment as it speeds by. When I make a successful image, I hope to have both captured the essence of what was in front of me in that fraction of a second, and to have captured something that stands outside of time. In some way, I hope to make that moment last forever.
