Moment x Willem Verbeeck Grant Recipient

Julien Machuca

It's a way of exploring the theme of time.

The photographs themselves are focused on the light that passes through the home as a way of exploring time - time that has passed in the home, as well as times to come. I wanted to explore a story that deepens and signifies the relationship between people and the places they inhabit.

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of this project was not being able to meticulously plan out any of the shots. Because I was focused on capturing moments of light throughout the house, I had to work with what I was given, and take each moment in stride. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as I was able to experience first-hand how the house changes throughout the day, just as it’s inhabitants do. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
