Aaron Alamo uses the typical visual elements of the Baroque Vanitas, adding some contemporary objects, but his message transcends a mere aesthetic, as he plays with our idea of photography and art as eternal elements. His work is a photograph of a photograph taken 10 years ago and treated with humidity and fungus for its prompt decomposition. Aaron's work makes us question the temporality in art and the concept of eternal.

Aaron Alamo: “‘Vanitas: Not-so-still Life’, is a project that shows the destruction of a photograph through time. Inspired by traditional vanitas paintings, with elements that are carefully chosen to give them a modern twist: a skull with orthodontist braces, a bucket of KFC, a plastic cup, etc., The original photographs were created in 2008. They were printed on cotton paper and ‘treated’ with humidity and a culture of fungus in a dark place. The process of decay was photographed every year for the next 10 years creating a series of images of decay and transformation. This series demonstrates how nothing is eternal -not even a photograph.”
