‘Don’t Pass Me By’ preserves a precise moment in the life of a ramshackle building, monument or vibrant wall of graffiti. A figure passes by and, with the click of a button, time is frozen for a split second. The anonymous passer-by and structure come together for a fleeting moment to represent an era. Urban buildings adorned with advertising slogans, graffiti, or simply in decay, have a strange power of fascination. They question our own permanence as much as that of the built environment that surrounds us. Just as we move on and change, so do they.
