Photographs freeze the world around us — unless they’re by Singapore-based
photographer Fong Qi Wei.
Intrigued by photographing time, Wei created single, composite pictures from a sequence of images spanning 2-4 hours. He concentrated on capturing sunrises and sunsets as they evolved over different landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes.
He then digitally stitched the images together to get a snapshot of time passing over the scene for his series “Time is a Dimension.”
“Most paintings and photographs are an instance of time,” Wei explained in his artist’s statement. “That’s not the way the world works. We experience a sequence of time, and that’s why a video is somehow more compelling than a freeze frame.”
