Photography has so many different genres, and time-lapse is one of them. It allows the viewer to experience a subject or scene from a different perspective.
While time-lapses are viewed as videos, professional time-lapses are a sequence of raw images. Photographers use cameras to take a series of photos and then convert the sequence into a video.
I discovered this medium while working with Hanien Conradie at the Tankwa Artscape Residency in the Karoo Desert in 2019. We were walking through the desert landscape, discussing the dry river beds. Hanien spotted a stone and decided to set her fingerprints on it with mud she made from the desert sand.
The time-lapse video, Toorspreuk van die Tankwa, was included in her solo exhibition, Spoorloos, at the Everard Read Gallery, Cape Town, 2021.
I look forward to playing and experimenting with this medium as the moments move me.
