Split Second!

The Morning News recently featured the excellent work of Barbara Probst. In her series “Split Second”, Probst utilizes multiple cameras to capture the same exact second from different viewpoints. She is interested in the authority given to a lone photograph versus the idea that there isn’t just one reliable representation of a particular moment. “What happened” is open for interpretation.

Exposure #39: NYC, 545 8th Avenue, 03.23.06, 1:17pm

I love the exact details each diptych or triptych is given.

Exposure #34: NYC, Central Park, Umpire Rock, 06.14.05, 6:01pm

Exposure #37: NYC 249 W. 34th Street, 11.07.05, 1:13pm

Read a great little interview with Probst and see more of her work here:

    Here you go Jeff:

    Summary:
    Get a laptop (prefably pc)
    Mostly done with Canons, but apparently Nikon has some software too. Use manufacturer utility and sync all cameras to PC clock.
    Set all cameras to same channel and frequency and to fire off an assigned trigger.

    Place camera’s and fire.

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
