Introduction

 

I am very interested in the idea of system of time and photography. As Roland berthas illustrated in the book Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography, “Cameras, in short were clocks for seeing”. I am interested in seeing how photography and time unfolding one onto the other. Since the invention of photography, the image-making process has evolved from accurately rendering to subjectively depicting realities. I’m interested in photographic processes, and as I explore more photographic techniques, I realize that photography makes possible more than the representation of a single point of view, a single moment, or a recording of exactly what was in front of the camera’s lens at a given moment. Beyond the subject matter of the photograph, there are the materials, the actions of and choices made by artist, and the time involved in the image making process. By using different materials and the form of art my works challenges the established photographic process. Instead of the control required to make a “perfect” photograph, I deliberately leave the results to chance.
