An interesting concept by photographer Matthias Geiger’s. The Tide series concerns itself with the ebb and flow of people as they pass through time and place. Using a computer-based technique of layering the still images he shoots, Geiger erases the physical presence of the figures in his work, leaving just a trace of their forms in the landscape.
Artist Statement:
Tide is a series of images examining human presence in various locales. It is a play on the space-time continuum, reflecting the ebb and flow of people through specific locations. Photography’s capacity to depict a singular moment in time is extended within this series, by layering a series of porous images from various instances in time into coherent new compositions.
