"Final Destination," 2014. David Hilliard
Viewfinder | A Series of Life-in-Slow-Motion Shots
Time seems to elapse slowly in front of David Hilliard’s lens. With his multipaneled photographs — diptychs and triptychs of both real and fictional experiences — he manipulates the present, past and future so that time seems to unfold in slow motion. He thrives on extending poignant moments and looping narratives, such as awkward teenage confrontation (“Game On”) or that sense of trouble in the air that comes with crossing paths with unfriendly strangers and their equally unfriendly dogs (“Rain Came”). His pacing in this series, recently published in a poetic monograph called “What Could Be” ($50, Minor Matters Books), transports the viewer to the photographer’s perspective, making each moment feel like we were actually there.
