There is also something Zen-like in the symbolism and poetry of Perry’s imagery. Something that exists and yet does not wholly exist, that both reflects light and emanates light itself.
Senior Curator, Harry Ransom Center
from the foreword "Practicing Eternity"
Exploring themes of electricity, shadow and solidity, Transitory is Sean Perry’s photographic study of architecture and the built environment. With these images Perry has rendered static structures as symbols, revealing an unexpected beauty and graceful clarity. This project invites brief passage into a world void of linear events, leaving the echo of the places and things felt, not seen.
This first volume in a series of three, is a plate book featuring ten tipped-in artist prints and one free-standing platinum print. Including a foreword by Roy Flukinger, Senior Curator of Photography & Film at the Harry Ransom Center, it is letterpress-printed and hand-bound in a quarter leather binding. The book and platinum print are enclosed in a full cloth drop spine box. Handmade by book artist Jace Graf & published by Cloverleaf Press in a limited edition of eighty-seven numbered & signed copies.
In addition to notable private collections, Transitory is held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Wittliff Collection of Southwestern and Mexican Photography and the Manfred Heiting Collection of Fine Books.
