Ansen Seale
San Antonio, Texas

Over the past 20 years, Ansen Seale has developed his own photographic technique called “slit scan photography.” He invented his own camera–a modern and digital cousin of the panoramic camera–that has the faculties to invert many of the traditional rules of photography. With his equipment, unmoving objects are blurred and moving objects are rendered clearly. “It is important to understand that my images are not artificially manipulated. This is truly the way the slit scan camera sees the world,” he says. Though a photographer by practice, Ansen is most influenced by painters, and the images he produces possess a notably painterly quality.

It's a beautiful photo. Something about it so touches me -- about the past, life, Italy, the future. Thank you so much. Warm regards, Janet
