The problem I have with photography is that it is a still image, a still medium. It’s not necessary a bad thing, but it is how it is. It takes reference from paintings. Cinema┬átake references from theatre. Despite both mediums using cameras, they are essentially and fundamentally very different. Attached above, isn’t my work but just a photograph I took with a longer shutter, swirling my camera around. I was at Bandung and I was bored so I attempted to capture an image with movement hoping to translate the duration of my swing as well. However, how far can it be pushed? Must the love of photography be constrained in just still images? Can photography be pushed beyond it’s own boundaries?

Photography does show time. Actually, it freezes time. Classic. But it does not interact.
