Revolving around my mind

Michela Heim's photos have been constantly revolving around my mind recently. Her aesthetic revolves around nostalgia, but also in the stillness of the subjects she captures, making them appear as if they had always been there and will remain there after the shutter has closed, a notion of permanence even in movement. It is that permanence that makes them stick to my thoughts so much, driving me to see my daily life through her lense, falsifying colours and making images truer to life by involving a mood and not only a clear representation of reality. This is what photography is about, the past and the immortality of a moment, and she represents both perfectly.
