Story and photos: Douglas Symon

The art of making pictures with light is on show at the Tampere Main Library Metso for the next two weeks.  Having just started the Degree Programme in Media at TAMK my project Photographs that move can be seen between today, Monday 30th August, and Saturday 11th September.  The exhibition focuses on work from 2009 documenting my current home town Pirkkala.

One of the most striking aspects is the 7.5 metre panorama on display, something you probably won’t stumble upon every day of the week.  As well as other points to see the technique used is not one typically suitable for documentary photography and as a result may cross a line into art.  I have combined between 2 and 5 bracketed exposures into each image.  In the case of the panorama even more.  Hopefully you can get along to see the prints and find it interesting.  Let me know what you think!!
