Mahr's photographs capture moments. Her technique of superimposing objects onto a backdrop allows for the construction of images which have a timeless quality. The series from which these works are devised followed a journey to China. Each element of the composition has a symbolic meaning which is in accord with the traditional philosophy of Oriental painting. The meaning is not literal or factual but enigmatic.
