Hypersilence

A funny thing happens when you sit at a beach for a long time. You become numb to the crashing waves. Sounds blend into a mash of white noise. Colours and events blur and average out, and within all of this there is silence, both mentally and aurally.

The long exposures of this series mirror this experience. The colours are whitewashed, much like their corresponding sounds. A visual silence is achieved. The dramatic tones of reality are muted and what is left are subtle variations, as if seeing life through tracing paper. The beach is vast and empty, yet so full of emotion.

By keeping the shutter open for up to three hours, a median between dramatic sunlight and cloudy periods is captured.

Daniel J Vega - me parece que sus fotos son magnificas, esa contemplación que alude a la vibración y a l tiempo, a través de la contemplación, algo que solo la fotografía puede representar y lograr eso pragmático en mí.

espero un día conversar con usted aceda de sus motivos de obra.

ketan - Great idea and great shots!! How did you prevent the colors from getting washed out completely after a three hour exposure?
