Photography is all about that frozen moment, a split-second when what has been and what will be are held forever by the click of the shutter.
British photographer Rory Lewis has taken this into the studio and created a series of portraits where the sitter has been asked to pause, and to prepare for something to happen, be it good or bad. The resulting images can be seen on screens at railway stations in Liverpool.
"The work is entitled Selah, a Hebrew word which is interpreted to mean to meditate, to pause," says Lewis.
"All of the subjects are photographed as though they have this epic decision to make.
"If you won the lottery tonight and were sitting with the ticket, you ask yourself what am I going to do at 9am when I collect this money? That's... the moment of decision."
