Here’s an interesting quote on photography, space and time from photographer Wynn Bullock.
“I feel all things as dynamic events, being, changing, and interacting with each other in space and time even as I photograph them.” – Wynn Bullock
Although primarily known for his Black & White photography Bullock created a stunning series of color light abstractions from about 1959-1964. “For about five years, Dad all but stopped making black & white photographs and became totally absorbed in the creation of his photographs of light. He felt that color helped him express the beauty, richness, and potency of light as a living force. Abstraction enabled him to get close to the essence of universal qualities. By choosing not to symbolize recognizable object-events – for example a tide pool teeming with a variety a familiar organisms – and by symbolizing instead vivid forms of light pulsing with energy and surging upward through unfathomable darkness, Dad believed he could evoke more directly and intensely the qualities which both pictures could represent.” Barbara Bullock-Wilson
