“I set up my camera in front of my computer and pointed it at a movie, expecting that, if you expose the negative for an hour and a half with a film in front of it, you’d get a bit like what you get when you mix balls of Play-Doh together – just a brown monotone hue” Jason Shulman
For his series Photographs of Films, the artist Jason Shulman captures long-exposure of emblematic masterpiece of cinema, 2001, the odyssey of the space of Kubrik to the Fantasy of Disney. He creates abstract images, from clouds of colors to ghostly shadows allowing to perceive the global atmosphere created by each director.
« You can learn something about the director’s style from this kind of kooky translation: you can learn that Hitchcock deals with people, for example, Kubrick deals with composition [….] in one exposure all of these things, although very subjective, kind of come through.” Jason Shulman
