Cicely Oreffo’s work explores the concept of time, the delicacy and fragility of the self. Informed by Roland Barthes’ writings on death and the photograph, ‘Pause’ uses colour and texture to illustrate the ephemeral aspect of life. Flowers encased in ice become ambiguous and abstract forms, whilst air bubbles highlight the transience of the flower.

Can a photograph of a frozen flower fully contain the essence, vitality and beauty of the flower itself?
