Long-exposure photography undermines notions of representation by capturing motion in still frames. In the words of John Szarkowski, 'There is in fact no such thing as an instantaneous photograph. All photographs are time exposures, of shorter or longer duration, and each describes a discrete parcel of time.’ Often however, these parcels of time are staged to represent a sense of split-second duration in an attempt to manipulate representational grammar to conform to normative expectations of how photographs are meant perform. This photo essay presents 12 images (both single images and diptychs) of what I call ‘meld moments’, where accidents during long exposures reveal the assemblage between bodies, spaces and technologies.

Abstract

Long-exposure photography undermines notions of representation by capturing motion in still frames. In the words of John Szarkowski, 'There is in fact no such thing as an instantaneous photograph. All photographs are time exposures, of shorter or longer duration, and each describes a discrete parcel of time.’ Often however, these parcels of time are staged to represent a sense of split-second duration in an attempt to manipulate representational grammar to conform to normative expectations of how photographs are meant perform. This photo essay presents 12 images (both single images and diptychs) of what I call ‘meld moments’, where accidents during long exposures reveal the assemblage between bodies, spaces and technologies.
