Artist Jay Mark Johnson has taken full advantage of slit scan photography, turning out some striking works of art that emphasizes time over space. These shots aren’t Photoshopped, movements are captured moment to moment while static subjects stretch out into lines where the width of an object corresponds not to distance or size, but the rate of movement.
Artist Jay Mark Johnson produces photographic images that challenge the norms of perception. Throughout his career, in work spanning the disciplines of drawing and painting, filmmaking, performance, architecture, and photography, he has made visible the intersection of human nature and society.
