Musings on art and life.
“Photography is usually used to ’freeze’ time, to capture a moment for remembrance. Yet every scene is subject to the flow of time, and to actually see a sun set into dusk is different than looking at an unchanging snapshot.”
Fong Qi Wei, through different exposures and collages, challenges the idea of the snapshot in a most beautiful way. By taking a series of exposures, usually during sunrise or sunset, (to obtain the widest variety of change in light over a short period of time) slicing, and then composing them into a single print, the dimension of time is added to an otherwise mundane 2D image. For the series Time is a Dimension he aimed to “break out of this restriction of a single slice of time in photography.” He wanted to see if the impression of time could be given without the use of video or long exposure, to maintain the details usually lost through both of those forms of image recording.

As always, photo cred belongs solely to the artist, and all images link back to his website.
