The "stoop shadows" series employs intense light to describe a moment. The shadows transform both quickly as the sun moves throughout the day and slowly as the sun changes its angle with the seasons.

The stoop itself is also passing through time as it ages and decays. Paint begins to flake, the iron corrodes, and decorative elements begin to disappear, leaving the viewer to imagine their existence.
