A few of my improvised photos will be on show from 28th September at DINA, along with some recent digital experiments.
“This exhibition shows a small number of photographs and digital works from an ongoing project by Mark Summers in which he creates long exposure photographs of musicians improvising.
Improvisers are given a space and time in which they can play, with their movements creating the image. A camera is placed near an improviser and a photograph is made of them performing. The length of the improvisation is roughly determined by an exposure time, generally around four minutes. In effect this stretches photographic time (fractions of a second) into musical time (minutes).”
