Blur

In the beginning of the 20th century two Italian brothers and photographers, Anton and Arturo Bragaglia, were more interested in capturing movement rather than in capturing shapes. They aimed to create a dedicated style of photography: photodynamism. Movement was to be depicted as a continuum, as a trace of a trajectory. There are no clear lines in photodynamism to which most of us are so used in a still photograph. Instead, principal subject matter is mostly blurry, being caught in motion: in time rather than in space.

This series is my homage to their vision. Along, there is something else I wanted to accomplish with it. Photodynamism speaks to my pursuit of that which cannot be easily perceived and defined. In these photographs, I try to capture not so much the phenomenon of motion but rather the elusiveness of the tangibility of a form that becomes evident when motion (including that of a camera) becomes the principal subject in a medium that makes things stand still.
