31”-32”

I’m running away from what is known in photography as Henri Cartier-Bresson’s “decisive moment”. The decisive moment occurs when the visual and psychological elements in a real-life scene spontaneously and briefly come together in perfect harmony to express the essence of that situation by capturing a quintessential, and a holistic instant in the flow of life. This project is running away from such a moment and during a month only one photo was taken every hour.

Each day is represented by a number of 14 to 18 pictures. The pictures were taken each hour from minute 31 to 32, and the author has selected one picture to represent the entire day. The selection was totally biased and it was based on feelings, emotions and the state of the mind at that moment.

All the pictures were taken with a 35 mm focal length at an aperture of f/5.6 to simulate the binocular human vision at noon, on a sunny day in the summer.

The project began on the 9th of June 2010 and has ended on the 8th of July at 24:00.
