The challenge for Photo Assignment #7 is motion in photography. How do we render things that move? A photograph is a still image that simply captures a moment in time so how do we communicate something as metaphor when it can’t be shown literally?

The most obvious solution is to open the shutter with a long exposure. Elements that are still will be sharp and motion will blur. There are other ways of showing time too that are more conceptual. If you look at Hiroshi Sugimoto’s theater series – you can see a long exposure the length of the film that acts as light on the scene. Perhaps the answer is something simple like emotion or gesture. Maybe the answer is seeing the results of some action that lead to it. Motion can be implied in many ways.
