For 40 years, Felicia Murray traveled through the Photography world. Her book Edges of Time has just been published by Artiere. In this preface Larry Fink writes:
“Most passionately evident in Felicia’s images is her seductive talent for living within the moment. This collection has an ironic fascination for all things which breath and shimmer in the surreal light of time passing. Ever since I’ve known her, 35 years now, she has been using the Leica and now the Sony to record her ferocious appetite for people, places and things… peeking in through the experiences she reaped in Paris, New York, Martha’s Vineyardand Arles, France.
All things are intimate for a curious eye, as each of these images presented have clues to an inner world… the world of Felicia’s eye and the world of those whom she perceives. We are privileged to be gifted with her keen visions, as they speak of places where most do not go. It suggests an eternal bohemia now almost gone, but fixed by image.
Felicia’s life beckons us to float freely inside this happy-sad collection. A reverie of images holding fast to life’s worth, as she dances on the edge with existential mirth.”
And Felicia adds :
“In my experience, photographing is instinctual, as if led by my intuition to unveil the familiar, and expose the dream of existence. I have always been visual, and I have always been looking. I am told that when I was three, my uncle brought me to the Metropolitan Museum. When asked what I liked most, I said “The light”.
While I have traveled my whole life, these particular images evoke places I have returned to again and again, places that carry a spirit of timelessness that almost eclipses their location. The people are also outside of time, some now in another dimension entirely, others as if just around the corner.”
