“Winona” was shot at the Winona Peach Festival in Ontario. It captures the moment when someone is lost in thought while in a public space. A country fair is a particularly good environment to photograph people without their objection. Following the trajectory of time from the midday through the evening, “Winona” is not so much a social critique as a series of portraits.

The technique used in this work is time-lapse animation. Time-lapse animation allows me to speed up or slow down images. This work was shot over a period of six years at four different fairs with consumer-quality digital still cameras. A digital still camera is somewhat intimate or at least does not invade privacy in the same way as a person carrying around a video camera does. The audio is recorded separately from a wide variety of sources and has a contrapuntal relationship with the images.
