Part 3

Project 1 – The frozen moment

“There is a pleasure and beauty in this fragmenting of time that had little to do with what was happening. It had to do, rather, with seeing the momentary patterning of lines and shapes that had been previously concealed within the flux of movement.” Szarkowski 

HEE-NC-57001.L
Harold Edgerton, Milk Drop Coronet, 1957

Does the camera capture movement in these images, or does it fragment it, as Szarkowski believed, isolating thin slices of time to reveal something new?

I think it isolates the slice of time to reveal something new, something barely imperceptible with human eye because of it’s speed. It is about a moment in time, a decisive moment because the brain it composes the whole story(also the moments before and after)
