When the world is slowly captured in paper-thin slices, motion leaves traces. Movement becomes sharply drawn instead of blurred. As subjects struggle for stillness or seize control their intent is captured. Even a still life, examined closely, reveals traces of movement induced by vibration and breeze. Decisive interplay becomes more important than the decisive moment.
These images are made—line by line—by merging ultra-large-format cameras from the early 1900s (or small garbage cans) with vintage copy camera lenses and highly modified flatbed scanners.
