Tall trees in shadow and light create a dynamic picture of a forested backyard.
The image is blurred—almost abstracted in grays, soft green and black against a hint of white sky. Etienne Labbé experiments with the interaction between his camera, motion and time. This time lapse photograph was taken while the photographer was moving. Labbé’s large format chromogenic prints are on archival paper, mounted on dibond (an aluminum composite panel) and faced cleanly with Plexiglas. This print is available on demand within six weeks.
“Rather than using photography as a medium of documentation, I prefer experimenting with its creative possibilities and its ability to distort our perception of time and space." Etienne Labbé
