    Recipient of the 2008-09 Bradford Fellowship in Photography, Madahar's series Falling explores childhood memories and the experience of a moment. She wanted to 'enter a fluid, imaginary space where an event unfolds over time and space specifically for a viewer. The intrinsic ability of photography to allow one to stare at a slice of time and that a photograph can hold one's attention to widely differing degrees has a great appeal for me.' (Artist statement, 2005)

    Number 3 from the sold-out edition of 7.
