The beauty of photography and its popularity as a medium stem from its intrinsic nature to freeze time. And yet, one of the hardest projects a photographer can embark on is the task to capture time. Fong Qi Wei successfully managed the challenge in his new photo series called Time is a dimension. The photos feature primarily landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes, made from sequences spanning 2-4 hours, mostly of sunrises and sunsets. While the familiar structure of urban landscape is present in every piece, each layer in the image conveys a different slice of time, closely related to its neighboring layers.
Fong Qi Wei’s work present the urban reality not as snapshot but rather as an experience constructed by a flow of events.
