In the series movere, movement is the central theme. Most photographs seize the moment, the photographer looking for the one-time picture.
In movere time flows. It is not only one moment, but sometimes even more than a minute, or a combination of scattered moments, packed in one picture.
What I want to show is not the frozen now, I want to suggest movement, flow, length in space and time.
Here you will find information about the works I made in this series until now. (Click the thumbnails for a larger image.)
The text to the left of the images answers your “when” and “how” questions. The “why” of this series was my motivation to connect photography, time and movement.
The urge to explore the boundaries between the neverending motion that characterizes the world surrounding us and the forever static character of the photograph.
Every image in the series movere is a 1/1: of each image, there is only one print for sale - hence: every one an original. The size of the images is 76x43 cm. The print is mounted between acrylic glass and dibond, with a profile at the back that makes the work float some two cm in front of the wall.
All photographs here are for sale, except of course when sold already, in which case that is mentioned in the description. Interested? You can buy them at Etsy.For more information, you can contact me at email@example.com.
Movere 1. Early in the evening of a day in September. Maartensdijk. The sun low, the colours warm, de movements vivacious. Like you notice from the corner of your eye when you think you're looking straight ahead.
Movere 2 is a montage. De photo's were taken in Utrecht, late in a July afternoon. The resulting image is filled with impressions of the city. People walking traffic signs, cars, houses, the road. Elements that do not strive for attention, but fade in to one another.
Movere 7. The North Sea, more than hundred miles kilometers west of Denmark. The movement not obvious, this picture owes its character to the combination of more than twenty pictures combined. The eternal sea, eternal unrest. In spite of that - or because of that? - also a source of rest and inspiration. Sold.
