I first came across David Fokos’s work at the Granary gallery on Martha’s Vineyard last summer. David works in black and white using long exposures ranging from 20 secs to as long as 60 minutes. Using long exposures David is able to ‘average time’ to give results that he believes are more representative of our impression of the world around us. This is particularly evident in his water series where the raging surf is tamed to give images that are more calming.
In the video below David discusses his process and his inspirations.
