The ghosts of Paris— ‘Time Frame’ a photoseries by New York based photographer Matthew Pillsbury. The images capture the passage of time itself in interiors of the Louvre, Palais Garnier, and Sainte Chapelle. His long exposure photographs were initially inspired by Hiroshi Sugimoto's works. Pillsbury has poignantly stated, “Much of photography is an attempt to stop the clock—to assert our presence: ‘I was here, I matter.’ Here, my photographs are doing something different: We are shown the fragility and fleeting nature of our presence.”
