I put up two different series on the SaatchiArt website. They may seem similar, but the concepts of each series and how the images were made are completely different.
Putting All Time In One Image
A lot of contemporary fine art photographers these days are making abstract, painterly images simply by blurring them. The end result is usually quite beautiful and, I will admit that while it doesn’t take a lot of talent to make these, it does take a good eye. The process of making a series of images like these is the process of waiting until a low light scenario happens, like sunrise, late afternoon, or sunset, or even waiting until dark, and then slowly moving the camera while the shutter is open and it is making the exposure.
That is what I did for the Mono Lake Series.
In some ways making these kinds of images is making the effort to put all time, or a lot of time and space, in one image.
Diving Between Space Into The No Time
The images in my LAGTIME series are quite the opposite when thinking about the concepts of time. The LAGTIME images dive into time in a space that does not exist. A place where time, and often times, matter, doesn’t exist. It’s much more experimental – and the process is much more involved.
You can see both of my current series on SaatchiArt. If you did not know the story and the process behind them, you might not grasp how different the process in making them and the meaning and the concepts behind the series, are.
Please go on over to SaatchiArt. Browse and “like” the work so that it gets some attention :) And if you have an account over there I will follow back.
