SLIT CAMERA AND CITY. CHICAGO 1983

I started this work as an experiment with my film camera.
I constructed a slit inside the camera, in front of the film, that would work as a shutter.
In this way all the film was exposed, without single frames, for about one minute.
In other words it is a handmade photofinish.
For me is in between cinema and photography, there is movement and freezing the moment.
There is movement and statics.
Has a scientific feeling and approach, with the liric of dance.
Time recording is expanded
The black and white was shot in a studio, and is called “Slit camera”.
“City”, in color, was shot downtown Chicago.
All this in 1983.
