Fong Qi Wei (20 pics)




“Photography is a medium that is famous for freezing time,” says photographer Fong Qi Wei . In Wei’s newest series, “Time is a Dimension”, he takes a number of photographs during a span of 2-4 hours (primarily during sunrises and sunsets) at a specific location, and then constructs a single composite image using different “slices of time” for the individual photographs. The results are pretty dope. “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.”
