The Time Frame Collection Captures the Relationship of Art

Photographer Mathew Pillsbury created a series of photographs called 'Time Frame' that capture the permanency of art. The photos are simply long time lapses of visitors to art galleries and museums. Since visitors are only within the camera's frame for a short time, they come out as transparent and featureless beings.

Pillsbury took pictures with exposures that went from just a few minutes to many hours. The result is a series of ghostly silhouettes that pass static pieces of art.

Time Frame captures works from famous tourist attractions such as the Louvre in Paris and the Tate Modern in London. No matter what location the artist took pictures of, the result was the same. Static and permanent pieces stand in front of the camera while fleeting spectators move in and out of the picture.
