The mediums of photography are light and time, and I’ve always been interested in what happens to light over a long period of time. How much time can I possibly capture into a single image?
An extension of City Meets Sea, the 10-hour exposures are made when I leave my camera on the beach overnight. I go once the sun has set and return just before it rises. The process is fraught with difficulty: multiple times I’ve arrived to find I misjudged high tide and found my camera and the trash can I use as a tripod floating amid the water.
Overall this series is an ongoing study of what remains – what makes a mark – when there’s so little light that it has to pile on the film’s surface over 10+ hours to even leave a trace.
