Singapore-based artist Fong Qi Wei found his own way to break out the limits of a single shot in time photography. His Time is a dimension series of various landscapes was produced from sequences of shots done within 2-4 hours mostly at sunrise or sunset hours when the sky color changes dramatically.
The basic structure of a landscape is present in every piece. But each panel or concentric layer shows a different slice of time, which is related to the adjacent panel/layer. The transition from daytime to night is gradual and noticeable in every piece, but would not be something you expect to see in a still image.
Similarly, our experience of a scene is more than a snapshot. We often remember a sequence of events rather than a still frame full of details. In this series, I strive to capture both details and also a sequence of time in a single 2 dimensional canvas. I hope it gives you pause and reconsider what you experience versus what you shoot with your next camera phone. – says Wei.
