Artist: Tim White
These enigmatic seascapes by the young photographer Tim White were created on nocturnal rambles. Using a long exposure he captures the still and silent world of night as day. At first glance they appear empty, inhuman places devoid of warmth or emotion, but there is a mysterious depth to the pictures brought about by White's patient technique. It's an intriguing method that works against photography's established strength in capturing instant detail. The works also have an abstract and minimalist quality, suggesting White sees himself as one of many artists who have attempted to capture the purity of the natural world.
The series of images in Precession take on a tradition of representing nature in its simplest form. In creating these photographs White used long exposures of up to twenty minutes to utilise the available light long after sunset and prior to sunrise.
