…Photography can be described as the recording of a single moment frozen within a fraction of time. Each moment or photograph represents a tangible piece of our memories as time passes. But what if you could capture more than one moment in a photograph? What if a photograph could actually collapse time, compressing the best moments of the day and the night seamlessly into one single image? —Stephen Wilkes
Jim Croce wanted to save Time in a bottle; Otis Redding sat on a dock in Sausalito, watching the tide roll away; and it was Al Stewart who, in 1978, observed that “…the picture is changing, now you’re part of a crowd…you’re all alone in these Time passages…”
It is one thing to hear about the concept of Time and quite another to see it illustrated in a photograph. Stephen Wilkes is in the process of redefining our idea of time.
