Time and Motion

I won't say what the camera was pointing at when I took these photos, because what it is and what it looks like doesn't need to be the same thing.

Most of my photos are the result of reduction and control. For these I've set up a situation and guided the process, but don't know what the results will look like until the very last stages. Captured on film, I've layered the colours and adjusted the tones, but otherwise these photos are created as physically as possible.

I don't quite have a handle on this series yet. There are anywhere from four to ten candidates in the photographs that I've already captured, but my next set are going to be taken with a different camera, and I don't know how well they'll play together. I'm expecting this to become an open-ended project that I can return to with new methods and techniques as time goes on.

No comments:

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
