b1954, Billy’s works are not just visual appeals. He likes to add depth to the images and create a relationship between the subject and the environment. Therefore multiple-exposures, overlapping frames and in-camera collage technique are often applied to his photography work.
The motion picture film of today represents the pinnacle of color film technology, characterized by a distinctive, luminous richness of both palette and tonality. Alternatively, Black and White and motion picture film has changed very little since the 1950s and retains a particular look many of its users describe as a classic, silver-rich “vintage” feel that is unduplicated in available still films on the market today.
All art comes back to a kind of storytelling… today we use the art gallery to tell ourselves the stories we think are important to hear. It is that same flexible film that allows us to tell stories in either a single frame, or many.
Photography is my language and an image is story
