Title: VENICE SPACEWALK: THE SPACETIME PHOTOGRAPHY OF JAY MARK JOHNSON: VOLUME ONE - LIMITED SLIPCASED EDITION SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Description: Venice, CA, Venice Family Clinic & Jay Mark Johnson., 2010, First Edition. Linen Boards in Slipcase, Oblong Narrow 4to, np, profusely illustrated in color. Designed by Hsuan-ying Chou and Jay Mark Johnson with Lorraine Wild and Victor Hu, Green Dragon Office. This lavishly produced volume is the first monograph on the space-time photography of Jay Mark Johnson. "Coming across Jay Mark Johnson's photographs for the first time, a viewer may well be reminded of the photo finish images used to determine winners at track meets, horse races, and other sporting events. In Johnson's work, as in photo finish imagery, people, animals and moving objects are frozen against a background that has been dissolved by the camera into horizontal bands of color stretching from edge to edge of the picture plane. This similarity is no accident, since both Johnson and the photo finish cameraman employ the same technology - slit-scan photography. As utilized by both, slit-scan is used to capture movement as it unfolds in time. In emulsion-based photography, the technology involves an actual slit moving continuously past the film, exposing a sliver at a time to create an image that "freezes" motion. With the highly sophisticated digital camera that Johnson employs, the same effect is achieved with a "virtual" electronic slit, a single pixel in breadth that scans the subject (which, like a race, is in fact an "event"). In either case, all of the movement that occurs in front of the lens is synthesized into a single image. The resulting photographs capture, in a graphic way, the event that takes place during that period, so that in Johnson's pictures a person may appear more than once in the same image (having overtaken the tracking movement of the slit), and objects become subject to an exaggerated form of the photographic phenomenon known as "focal-plane shutter distortion". A brand new, pristine example of the limited slipcased edition of this amazing book of color time and motion studies taken in and around Venice California additionally BOLDLY SIGNED AND DATED "Jay Mark Johnson 2014" in black ink on the title page still in the publisher's shrinkwrap.
