Max Kraanen (1984)
This is my thesis project for the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam.
For this project I travelled by train across Europe with my 4x5 camera as my travel companion. I've searched the continent for situations which allowed to experience a timeless moment. All the pictures in this series are shot at night or in the evening. The title of each picture is a reference to the date and time the picture was taken. (For example: 0603201422212228 is March 6, 2014 from 22:21 til 22:28) I used this reference to stress the difficulty, maybe impossibility, to capture a true timeless moment. The images are shot on film and I didn't use photoshop to alter the colours. The colours are created by using long exposure times.
