Matthew Allred’s recent body of works reacts to what he calls the loss of intuition in digital photography. In this series, Allred wanted to capture more than just a moment and does so with a process called “Heliography”, which he describes as,
“A photographic process that utilizes pinhole cameras and ultra long exposures, ranging from 24 hours to 6 months. The resulting images are landscapes which feature the path of the sun. In the longer multi-month exposures the suns path can be seen shifting with the seasons. “
In this series Allred explores the extended length of the photographic moment and the aesthetics of chemical processes. By capturing stretches of time, Allred’s work focuses on the changes of the sky, the seasons, and overall effects of time. To see more of his work, click here.
