The traditional use of a photograph has been to capture the ubiquitous encapsulating “moment” that is a split second of time which seeks to represent/reflect a larger span of time.
The five photographers featured in “Time Tracers” defy that tendency, seeking to represent through the single image or the grouping of multiple images, the passage of time. To do so, they employ a variety of techniques including long exposures (ranging from minutes to days), sequencing multiple images to trace time’s mark on their subjects, and pushing the boundaries of the photographic medium’s ability to record the passage of time on a single sheet of film/paper.
