White out

Once a place designated for posting notes of public interest billboards have grown in scale, spectacle and sheer quantity. Not only has their physical scale increased, but they also reach further in time and space by being backlit. These large format black and white images are part of an ongoing project where the specific photographic technique of long exposure is applied to subvert the advertisement. They transform individual billboards from conveyers of calculated messages to visually striking voids pregnant with possibility, opening up to allow a slower and more profound process of contemplation of the rare and eerily beautiful urban sight.
