The End + The Instant

The End + The Instant is temporarily down for maintenance. New design and updates will launch soon.

Your photography is a record of your living, for anyone who really sees.

—Paul Strand

“Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”

—Susan Sontag, “On Photography”

Lark has taken and collected instant photographs for years. It used to be important to him, that he had these tokens. Solid memory. He’s not sure he wants to remember anymore.

Lark remembers anyway.

When a new friend asks about his photo collection, Lark tries to explain himself, assembling a story from the fragments he’s captured.

The End + The Instant is an ongoing novel-in-flash with photographs.
