Layers of Time from an Aerial View

When we last wrote about her, Amsterdam-based photographer Katrin Korfmann was showing us the world from a fresh perspective. Today, she continues to do so in her large-scale, painterly images that focus on the concepts of people and time from an aerial view.

By placing a camera directly over a selected scene, Korfmann captures people placed against one singular backdrop over the course of hours, without disrupting social behavior. Her final product is a collection of digitally processed layers, pieced together into one unique representation of time and space.

The key to her pieces is that, seen from above, every person seems very much the same. However, according to a recent press release, "there is frailty here too. The specks of human bodies positioned against the background Korfmann refers to as "space zero", is also unveiling that even while sharing a social system, walking on the same square, standing in the same lines, we are islands of separate existences."

To see the work in person, check out her solo show at the Galleri Andersson/Sandstrm in Ume, Sweden, running now through May 18, 2012.
