Hiroshi Sugimoto : ‘Drive Ins’ (Photography)

The New York-based Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto produces photographs in series. He meticulously selects and then researches subjects, returning to the same few time and time again, taking pictures and then producing technically immaculate black and white prints of absorbing clarity and density. Since the late 1970s, Sugimoto has worked on several series that have together encompassed seascapes, dioramas, movie theatres and drive-ins.

Michael Wesely : ‘Long Exposures’ (Photography)

For more than a decade, Michael Wesely has been inventing and refining techniques for making photographs with unusually long exposures-some as long as three years. In 1997 he began using this unique approach to photography to explore major urban construction projects, such as the rebuilding of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.

Matthew Pillsbury : ‘Screens’ Series (Photography)

“A photograph can reveal extraordinary visual truths that lie beyond the limits of our perception of the world. We all know that in using a short exposure, a photograph can capture things we cannot see. A celebrated example is Muybridge’s study of the biomechanics of a galloping horse. In using much longer exposures, from a few minutes to over an hour, I seek truths and beauty in our everyday world that are equally surprising to us.” Matthew Pillsbury

Edgar Martins : “When Light Casts no Shadow” Series.

In reflecting on the complexity of the negotiations between estranged lives and de-territorialised worlds, one might wonder if the generic city is synonymous with the contemporary airport. Immured in temporality and suffering from a sense of historical discontinuity, the airport is the elementary expression of abstract space.

Philip McKay : ‘Long Exposures’ (Photography Series)

“I was born in Anfield, Liverpool. I’ve always had an intrest in photography and over the last three years specialised in black and white fine art. Filters play a big part in my photography and for long exposures I use the ndx400 filter and the ndx1000 filter with a exposure time of three minutes or more. Lee neutral density graduated soft filters are also used for shorter exposures.” – Philip McKay

Jon DeBoer : Street Photography

I do not seek to shoot photos that just depict the world around me as it appears to the eye. For these reasons, I primarily work in black and white and often use longer exposure times.

Hirsch Perlman : Photography (Long Exposures)

George Ramms ‘Long Exposures’ (Photography Series)

By using long exposures, George Ramms directs the viewers attention to the still object of the picture. Things and places that are not obvious, or even mostly ignored to be photographed, unveil their beauty in monochrome pictures with a smooth skin of light.

Pierre Pellegrini : ‘Waterscapes’ Series (Long Exposures)

“For me, photography represents a wonderful means to communicate and, at the same time, to give the viewers the chance to feel emotions. I am not quite sure if it’s me who is looking for the themes or if it’s the themes themselves who are looking for me.
