The Fragments of Time

Photo series mapping the danger of extinction


The Fragments of Time maps the phenomena of the danger of extinction.

The series is based on the fear of disappearance – a type of fear that is very common nowadays. Through recording vanishing species and adding hypothetical visions of the future, the goal is not to document death, but life. Though the prediction today is about the worst-case scenario, the actual outcome may still be positive if there are people who are willing to do something about it.

The goal of the series is not to catalogue all species or objects at risk of extinction. Instead of statistical data, the objects are chosen based on information from local people in order to see how many a person encounters in the course of their everyday life and whether they even notice them at all.
