The act of capturing life is one that is found in many different media of art. These media often capture the many complexities and beauty of life; the irreversible moment in our past that we can only experience once. With this being said, photographing captures a moment of previsualization. Capturing a moment with a camera is fairly banal, but capturing a pre-visualized and emotion-evoking image can resonate within oneâ€™s soul. This resonance is what makes images timeless, immortal. This resonance is what ultimately leaves traces of our existence. Even posthumously, then, the photographed images would retain a contemporary essence. This essence is what accentuates the fact that â€œart imitates life.â€?
