This piece depicts the Alameda Theater in San Antonio, Texas. When it opened in 1949, it was the largest movie theater dedicated to Spanish language cinema in the USA.

Rather than suspending a single moment, my photography examines the passage of time. To accomplish this, I invented a modern digital version of the panoramic camera. In my version, a single sliver of space is imaged over an extended period of time, yielding the surprising result that unmoving objects are blurred and moving bodies are rendered clearly.  This is no trick. This is photography in the purist sense, but a form of photography where abstraction is the norm, not the exception.
