Exploding Cinemas

|



One evening while taking photographs at the American Museum of Natural History, I had a near-hallucinatory vision. My internal question-and-answer session leading up to this vision went something like this: "Suppose you shoot a whole movie in a single frame?" The answer: "You get a shining screen." Immediately I began experimenting in order to realize this vision. One afternoon I walked into a cheap cinema in the East Village with a large-format camera. As soon as the movie started, I fixed the shutter at a wide-open aperture. When the movie finished two hours later, I clicked the shutter closed. That evening I developed the film, and my vision exploded before my eyes.

Las fotos están muy bien, aunque hay alguna que no sé no sé…

No sé si estas de cachondeo... Por si acaso: es un paisaje marítimo en un día de niebla. Dentro del contexto de la serie tiene todo el sentido del mundo.

Tanta es la niebla que lo del paisaje marítimo lo sabes por el contexto. Pero vale, me has convencido. Dentro del contexto, está bien… ahora que por separado, es una birria.

Tambi'en ten en cuenta que estas fotos son enormes. A mayor definici'on a lo mejor se ve m'as claro lo que pasa.
