Selections from Amir Zaki’s Time Moves Still
The title refers to the common adage, “Time Stands Still.” Each of the photos in the exhibition is compiled from 40-100 individual images. Therefore, the pictures represent 10-15 minutes of time passing by.
For instance, the trees have an almost painful degree of resolution, which would imply an instantaneous exposure with an incredibly sharp lens. But, they also contain areas of softness and blur, moments when the wind may have picked up during exposure, which imply movement and the passing of time.
