Easter Lily

Nigel Rolfe

1994

The image of the lily, a symbol of the Rising with its connotations of death and resurrection, had been appropriated by Sinn Fein and sold in flag form to raise funds.

Rolfe's time exposure sets out to re-appropriate the image both historically and culturally.

Photographed over six hours on Easter Friday 1994, the changing light sweeping over the white lily creates its own colour effects. For Rolfe the flower, no longer a pure white, symbolises a sense of spiritual loss; the concept of freedom, at the heart of the Easter.
