Series Title: „Timeless motion”

Andras Ladai



Andras (39) is Hungarian, and currently lives in Berkeley, CA. He graduated as a photogrammetrist engineer and earned his PhD as a geoscientist at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. He also completed extensive extracurricular studies in photography and fine arts under several prominent Hungarian artists.

Andras' photographic activity is highly diverse. His personal and professional interests leads him to a wide scope of experiments with a broad range of imaging technologies. He makes fine art using pinhole photography, traditional black and white technology, digital photography, multispectral imagery, and the latest 3D capturing technologies. When working on a new concept, he is inspired by both the intellectual exploration of the topic at hand, as well as the new visual possibilities presented by the chosen technology. While often creating surrealistic images, he also pays tribute to the documentary roles of photography

He displays artwork in group exhibitions internationally.


„Timeless motion”

Time is stopped in National Parks. Since their establishment, the development of land – which reflects the linear passage of time in human civilization – is virtually unknown phenomenon in the parks. Visitors can observe only periodical changes of nature. The underlying picture stays constant.

The blurred movements on these pictures reflect timeless motion, since the question of “when” defies an answer, is meaningless. The mixed imaging technology used for the pictures further reflects the unimportance of human timing: the images were captured on traditional film with a pinhole camera, and digital post-processing made for the vintage look.

The series were taken in Yosemite National Park in 2014 and finalized in 2016 for the centenarium of the US national parks.
