Thomas SeherSchlafende Frau#2
The details of Schlafende Frau #2 move with the wind. The woman’s hair. Her dress. The plants. The trees. The cinegraph makes the motion the key factor of the piece rather than a single, stationary object. While so many photos expect the observer to focus on a single detail or source, the subjects become a minor element to the motion that surrounds and interacts with them.

Thomas Seher is a composer and musician for film and theater. A few years ago he discovered the art of cinemagraphs and since then has been exploring the boundary between photography and film. His works decelerated movements open up a new perspective and invite observing changes. The motives are scenes, either real or staged, which gain a special artistic moment through they way the images are digitally processed. The continuous playback on the digital canvas provokes the impression of a smooth, ongoing movement. There is no cut, no change of perspective or camera panning - this is what makes it so captivating.
