Time has always been an impli­cit sub­ject of pho­to­gra­phy, and in J. John Prio­las movin­g­ly beau­ti­ful still-lifes it beco­mes expli­cit, visi­ble, as never befo­re. Each image gives the object at its cen­te­ra pair of bron­zed baby shoes, a men­ded dish­to­wel, a puff of smoke­the clear, inten­se scru­ti­ny usual­ly reser­ved for por­trai­tu­re. The­se still-lifes, howe­ver, are por­traits of absent lives and pas­sing time. Once Remo­ved brings tog­e­ther three sty­listi­cal­ly dis­tinct, the­ma­ti­cal­ly rela­ted series of the­se impec­ca­bly craf­ted images. The first gathers tog­e­ther evo­ca­ti­ve objec­ts that speak of hope, desi­re, and the flee­ting moments of para­di­se in every life. The second depic­ts objec­ts who­se scars, stains, and cracks testi­fy to now vanis­hed bodies, pas­si­ons, house­holds­rede­eming this flot­sam and jet­sam in pho­to­graphs which bril­li­ant­ly demons­tra­te that objec­ts can bear wit­ness to invi­si­ble ide­as and emo­tio­nal truths. The last series con­ti­nues to pur­sue time its­elf and, like the other two, tri­umphs at pho­to­gra­phys most dif­fi­cult task: depic­ting what can­not be seen. In this case ephe­mera­li­ty its­elf is depic­ted in images of things who­se life­span was often litt­le lon­ger than the time it took to make the pho­to­graph.
