Rebekah Facteau

   As a photographer, my work is made up entirely of once-in-a-lifetime moments. As each click of the shutter only takes a fraction of a second, what was once there may be gone with the blink of an eye. With time as my adversary, I am equipped with the photographers’ “superpower”—the ability to stop time and freeze it forever inside of a frame. This is the power that pulls me toward the camera. My subjects are often pensive and isolated in environments that have neither an entrance, nor an escape, expressing the universal experiences of vulnerability, uncertainty, and loneliness. Through these images I hope to make a connection with the viewer, allowing us both to recognize the basic emotions that link us all. With a constant reminder of time working against me, I continue to strive to hone my superpower of freezing time by being aware of the beauty that can be present and captured in any moment, but never again in another.
