Luis Weinstein

NO TITLE

The panoramic photographs of Luis Weinstein do not offer the usual wide survey of landscapes or urban situations. Instead, they are reflections on our manner of looking. Rather than surveying a place in one gaze, we collect a series of impressions and experiences, out of which we ultimately construct our image. Weinstein approaches this concept through a technique which he terms 'superposition'. In it he only partially advances the film in his camera between shots. In this way, overlaps occur on the negative. Through the time between shots and the various camera placements in the ultra-wide angle photographs, Weinstein combines aspects of panoramic photography and film. The end result is a narrative image in which details seem to loom up out of memory.
