Underwater by Erin Mulvehill at Candela Project Gallery, Munich

Erin Mulvehill’s newest series, Underwater, continues her examination of transience and rebirth.

She approached the project by photographing herself and a series of young, invariably beautiful women in a ‘frozen’ moment of transition.

She comments on her series: “the pictures create an aura of rebirth, capture the movement between transitional states. The burden of time stands at the genesis of human existence. Everything is transient; nothing lasts forever.

While this idea is very dominant in Buddhism, it still tends to infiltrate every fibre of our being. We are all born into this world, go through several states of development, decay, content, sadness and we all must die.

Whether one believes that this is where it all ends or the circle but continues, everyone is hard pressed to disagree that we go through various stages in life. Conversely, the pictures are a very intense expression of the fact that everyone exists in a constant state of transition, but everyone is unique.”

A limited edition catalogue with an introduction by Professor Kalus Honnef accompanies the exhibition.

The Munich Candela Project Gallery and its owner Patrick Löffler & Benjamin Antony Monn aim to create a unique platform for young contemporary photography through the programme.
