Travelling Still

Photographs by Rob Carter

As the name suggests, Travelling Still is all about creating the feeling of movement within a still image and tries to represent the experience of travelling itself. They stretch the ‘moment’ both literally — in that the camera shutter is held open — and visually, as the details of the subject blur out horizontally.

All the photographs in this series have been shot using a revolving-lens camera. The movement is created ‘in camera’ on to film, with no digital intervention — and are subsequently printed directly from the original transparency.
