Evan Hartzell : Summer Fades
‘When summer’s breath their masked buds discloses:
But, for their virtue only is their show, 
They live unwoo’d and unrespected fade, 
Die to themselves. Sweet roses do not so; 
Of their sweet deaths are sweetest odours made:
And so of you, beauteous and lovely youth,
When that shall fade, my verse distills your truth.
-Shakepeare. Sonnet 54.
Evan Hartzell is playing tricks on us.
Just as fall approaches he brings us back to the sights and smells of summer. 
As in a Shakespearian poem, his photographs yield sweet perfumes and reassure us that beauty is preserved.
As Summer Fades, his photographs suggest we hold on just a little bit longer.
-Jona Frank
