Stand still

No matter how slow the film, Spirit always stands still long enough for the photographer it has chosen.

In 1826, when french scientist Joseph Nicephore Niepce uncapped the lens of his latest invention to capture the view from the window of his country estate, time stood still for the first time in history. Granted, the exposure was eight hours long, but this was the first permanent, direct positive picture ever made. Until the camera seized it, time was an unstoppable traveler.

Time is perhaps the least understood tool in the photographic camera bag. The truth is that all photographs are time exposures – some instantaneous, some painstakingly long.

Time changes everything except something within us which is always surprised by change.
