Jay Mark Johnson’s photos are a unique view of the world we see. He calls them timelines and generously explained them to me on a recent visit to his studio.
With a background in architecture, Johnson explores the passage of time, creating horizontal space where none really exists. He describes it as a little like stepping through the looking glass with Alice where the rules of the world are bent, perhaps even parallel.
It’s pretty intriguing. He shoots one tiny sliver of the world, over and over, creating a long, horizontal piece. Anything that stays still becomes a line of color across the canvas and anything that moves becomes, well, you’ll see! His book Venice Spacewalk is debuting at this year’s event.
