Since 2013 Dan Boardman has created work by combining photography, drawing, and modified camera techniques created for special effects for early cinema. The result of this method is an image made completely in camera through a series of cardboard masks cut out and placed in front of the negative while shooting. This multiple layering creates an image unbound from one specific time or place. C elegan derives its title from caenorhabditis elegans, a one millimeter long worm-like organism that was the first multicellular organism to have its whole genome sequenced. This image took months to complete, and is comprised of over a dozen of individual exposures. While we usually think of photography as showing us one fixed point in space and time, Boardman’s process creates images that show multiple moments simultaneously, with images of nature and organic forms that evoke the feeling of a constant life cycle.
