In this series I make abstractions using a slow shutter speed while moving the camera. Often exposed at night, these are all found lighting situations printed with minimal digital manipulations. I take many exposures, experimenting with subtleties and dramas, hunting for how a certain flick of the wrist divulges new information or drawing out an exposure to intensify a scene.
Motion and time are rendered visible, graphically revealing the latent rhythms and patterns of the material world while tracing the camera’s navigation through it. My interest also lies in process: how to balance the chaos of a moving camera with the control gained over patient experimentation.
I am concerned with what motion reveals about the quality of a light source: does it flicker or vibrate, does it intersect with other lights, does it reveal an architectural shape or obscure it? These images blend a thin slice of space and a thick slice of time to create fiction from a mundane reality.
