Camera in Motion
Photography is an international art; it is an art that moves and influences its viewers. A picture is truly worth a thousand words; it carries places and memories that we oftentimes forget.
A project by artist and designer Rolf Sachs introduces images from his photo series ‘camera in motion: from Chur to Tirano’. The astonishing images exhibited show the beautiful rout taken by a train from Switzerland to Italy; in the photos Sachs delivers a great dynamism and many dramatic scenes to the viewers.
The images were taken over the course of a year showing changes in natural characteristics of places, seasons, and the effect of time.
The photographs were taken by a fixed camera placed on the moving train; the outcomes are priceless.
The blend of colours and motion caused blurring out parts of the photo while focusing on others; this has produced images with great aesthetics than cannot be produced by any computerized program.
The speed of the train, the curvature of the rout, and the distance between the object and the camera play a role in the quality and composition of the image. The beauty of Rolf’s photographs is incomparable.
