Digital photography enters the fourth dimension

Fong Qi Way's photography series incorporates the fourth dimension of time to show the transition from daytime to night.

The series goes from sunrise to sunset

"Photography is a medium that is famous for freezing time. The word snapshot suggests that a tiny slice of time is recorded for posterity," begins photographer Fong Qi Way. Here, he has created a series entitled 'Time is a Dimension' that aims to bring a new dimension and experience to the printed photograph.

Playing around with the tools of digital photography, Way created a series of single composite images featuring landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes from sequences that span 2-4 hours - mostly of sunrises and sunsets.

The basic structure of a landscape is present in every piece but each panel or concentric layer shows a different slice of time, which is related to the adjacent panel/layer. The transition from daytime to night is gradual and noticeable in every piece - showcasing a different side to the average printed photograph.
