This article is a reflection on my own practice and its connection to changing representations of time and movement within photography. In my work as an artist and photographer, I have endeavoured to develop a particular perspective on the relation between the heritage of photomechanical tools, new technologies, memory and space. In what follows, I describe a series of pivotal moments in the formation of this perspective as they exemplify a specific strand of photography, showing how they connect to wider transformations in the field of visual cultures.
Many thanks to Stephen Herbert for all of his hard work, patience and boundless knowledge that was required to realise this important publication, in formal recognition for the work of ‘Eadweard Muybridge’.
