Frans Verschoor works within a tradition, trying to capture space-time in one single image. For Verschoor, a memory is not just a single event, but a collection of moments. He started to routinely photograph the same places and objects over time. This gave rise to collections of sometimes hundreds of photographs, which are blended together to a single image.

Apart from the series in time, Verschoor has also taken shots of the same subject in space, such as a tree photographed from many different sides. With this technique, he attempts to represent not just a tree, but the tree. Despite the use of digital techniques, Verschoor’s work doesn’t emanate as a digital image, but in its appearance it refers rather to old paintings.

Verschoor’s work contains traditional themes, such as the recurring horizon. But first and foremost, the blended images form a Gestalt, an overall picture in which time is not linear, but cyclical. Routine becomes solidified time. One memory, consisting of many moments.
