Katherine Keates & Avi Cohen

With their collaborative photo series, Time Passages, photographers Katherine Keates & Avi Cohen have shown us that it is possible to slowdown enough to explore the seemingly mundane aspects of our daily lives.

In their opinion, the practice of being more aware will make you a better photographer as well as a better person, an individual more in touch with fellow human beings.

“In our daily lives, we pass through doors, walk through corridors, peer through windows, all without taking notice. There’s beauty everywhere, but we’re passing it by."                         Avi Cohen & Katherine Keates
