When photographing motion, we partly anticipate what is going to happen through our cameras. We look through the viewfinder, but what we see is a figment of our imagination – a perception of a moment that has not yet happened. Press the shutter and the magic of the moment is captured, our artistic vision made a reality.
For this issue’s submissions, we are delighted to have received a varied selection of photographic interpretations on “motion” from all over the world. We see people caught on film in shaky mid-movement, subjects suspended sharply in time, and clever use of motion blur to create certain moods and eerie imagery. These are not limited to people, too; we also get a glimpse of nature at work, and a slice of busy city life rendered in wobbly long exposures.
Browse through this issue’s selected submissions and dive into an interesting world of bends, swings, and frozen frames!
