These Photographs Are Time-Lapsed Flights Of Fantasy, by Kevin Cooley

These Photographs Are Time-Lapsed Flights Of Fantasy, by Kevin Cooley | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

On any given day, around 60,000 to 80,000 airplanes take flight worldwide. As common as a flock of birds flying overhead, the daily mass of planes leaves nothing but a flash of metal and dissolving vapor trail. Instead of depicting the airplanes as fleeting, photographer Kevin Cooley captures their light trails, transforming these vehicles into gleaming celestial fixtures of the sky. The long-exposure photographs were created by opening the shutter of his camera over an extended period of time near major airports in the US. The glowing lines in each picture represent the amount of time each plane takes to pass through the frame. The blinking navigation and landing lights blend into bright streaks, reminding us of their ubiquity in contemporary life.

I met DM (Deanna) Witman at PhotoNOLA, where she shared her pinhole work, which went on to  be celebrated in SHOTS Magazine and the Plates to Pixels Exhibition. At the end of our review, she pulled out some new work that I found completely engaging, photographs that were created with a little help from her friends...
For her project, Genesis, Deanna uses photographic processes and random gestures or movements made byslugs as they navigate across the paper, in slow determined paths.  The results are heavenly markings that reflect time, movement, and things left behind.
