Rediscover the time-based possibilities of the photographic image

The Art of Strip Photography

This new book by Maarten Vanvolsem proposes;

“a new use of this forgotten art: a use in which the temporal terms ‘speed’, ‘rhythm’, and ‘pace’ are of more value than terms so often associated with photography such as ‘freeze’, ‘split second’, or ‘capture’. Within the book one can find more than thirty artists using the strip technique for their artistic practice. A lot of the artwork produced goes beyond traditional photography and the standards set by the photo industry. The research also reveals the extent to which artists use the technique to rediscover the time-based possibilities of the photographic image.”

It is really exciting to be featured as part of this fantastic book by Maarten and be discussed alongside other great UK based photographers such as Simon Read, Tim MacMillan (The father of the Time-Slice technique). To find out more about the book please click here or if you can buy it here.
