Digital photography enters the fourth dimension

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.
