Sometimes photo projects take days. Sometimes they take months. In photographer and filmmaker Gioacchino Petronicce’s case, his project “PICTURES” took 3 years.
3 years and 80,000 photos led to this beautiful stop motion. According to the photographer, his goal with “PICTURES” was to give the viewer a glimpse into the flickering thought process and imaging information that turns into a final shot. It’s a wonderful peek into someone else’s point of view.
“The photographer is moving in the space to discover a particular event. When he finds it he just pushes the button and … click!”
The film speeds up and slows down, stuttering like a projector, showing you how each split second leads up to the decisive moment !
All the pictures were taken in Paris, Barcelona, Hossegor, Venezia, Toulouse, Martinique, New York City and Montpellier.
Music: Claude Debussy - Clair de lune
