TIM STANI

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
April 22 - May 13, 2014
Reception: Thursday May 1, 2014 6-8 PM

The panoramic photographs of Tim Stani are invaluable documents of the unique, eternal process of urban change. Using his native Vienna as the subject — rooftops, courtyards, gutted interiors, entire city blocks, even the skyline — Tim Stani investigates not only the presence of construction but the process of it. The artist trains his camera on a building site, and at first the resulting photo appears to be a comprehensive, highly detailed look at the ins and outs of a half-finished building.

But look closer, and the place’s movements begin to reveal themselves. Light changes from one side of the room to the other. One corner of a building is covered in piles of building materials, while the opposite corner is smooth and clean. And most arrestingly, the apparently unpopulated scenes suddenly show their “ghosts”: a blurry, partially transparent figure in the corner, caught in the exposure for only a few moments. These panoramic shots are captured over a matter of many minutes and many different shots, resulting in a true vision of time passing.
