Looking once is not enough.

The Not Here project is a series of long exposures of multiple views of the same location, or of multiple elements in the same location, produced with the intent of complicating the idea of the singular image, and of the singular experience of time and place, by finding ways to inject spatial and temporal multiplicity into the final image. Like the “viewer(s) / painter(s)” of Diego Velázquez’s Las Meninas, the camera looks left and right — or in front and behind itself — at the same time. These images are different than layering two or more separate photographs; these single exposures “paint” themselves by allowing light surfaces to erode dark objects and light objects to draw upon dark surfaces. The resulting transparency(s) create a range of physicalities and points of view, some elements solidly there and others fleetingly not.
