“I decided that instead of directly trying to reproduce a set of photographic circumstances, I should start by confronting things that I found limiting in photography.”

About Owen Kydd

Owen Kydd explores the relationship between still and moving images. The majority of the works you see here are short video loops played on custom screens that mimic light boxes; Kydd refers to them as “durational photographs.” More than anything else, his art is about the passage of time, a key part of the photographic process for Kydd. His pieces are stripped of story, instead focusing on a single object as an event in time. This approach results in artworks that exist somewhere between static and moving images, pushing the boundaries of both.
