Things are ramping up to the November 26, 2015 launch of the 20th book of the Platform TwentyFifteen project, Transitions. In this series of photos, I attempt to show the passing of time in a single frame. As mentioned in the interview of my project on the TwentyFifteen website,
"Photography has traditionally been about a single moment. That split second when things come together and a picture tells a story, has a good emotion and strong composition. This was one of the main pillars in my formative years as a photographer, when documentary photography and photojournalism was all I really concentrated on in the broader framework of photography
However, I’ve always been intrigued by time-lapse photography and I’m constantly amazed at how different the environment becomes when you see it over time. I guess I’m used to shooting in the now, and when you shoot that way, all that is important are the things that are happening at that moment. When you work on a time-lapse shot, you shoot multiple moments, and the accumulation of many variables inevitably shows you changes that you don’t notice until you put them all together. I guess you could say I’m experimenting with trying to show time passing in a single picture."
Thanks to all involved in the project, and if you happen to be in Singapore on November the 26, I'd love to see you at the launch of the book at the Jendela Visual Arts Space at the Esplanade: Theatres on the Bay at 7:30pm!
Thanks to A-List.sg for the write up on their magazine too!
