My father, a keen amateur photographer, lived for 25975 days; if every frame of a video running at 25fps represents 1 day in his life, it would last for 17 minutes, 19 seconds, 0 frames.

The constantly changing colour-scape of 17m:19s:0f is derived from extreme close-ups of photographic equipment once owned by my father and they are arranged according to a colour theory developed by the great cinematographer Vittorio Storaro which sees particular colours as being symbolic of different periods of a life. It’s soundtrack is composed of his my father’s own voice timing the darkroom developing process; the video is run both forward and backward simultaneously suggesting a life-cycle which simultaneously builds and runs out.¬†
