Observing the photographs of Canadian photographer Christopher Tamas Kovacs means introducing oneself to a parallel dimension, in a world where shadows fall within a carefully separated entity.
Space and time are completely distorted and merge into a sort of eternal cycle where one has the vision of a future and a past that overlap. In this series “ New York ” Christopher confronts the use of color which is quite a departure from all of his previous works which are in black and white, in fact, he is well known as the creator of the all black and white fine art photography. This work showcases a very unique color palette which gives off a plethora of energy that somehow mixes together the lives of the city with shadows in a seemingly unresolved dualism which is obscured by the static nature of buildings.

(1976) Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Christopher Tamas Kovacs is an award winning photographer best known for his multiple exposure street photography and his unique colour palette. I continue to explore my fascination with time and entropy in my series New York. By photographing multiple exposures from the same scene I show the contrast between the organized (the city) vs. chaos and disorder (the people). I am fascinated with science, particularly with quantum mechanics and the possibility of a multiverse, or multiple, parallel universes, which also sets the stage for my style of photographic works. I am also interested in exploring dreams, the subconscious mind and memory. My photography focuses primarily on scenes containing elements of nature, architecture and people. I capture “in camera” multiple-exposures of the same scene from different angles and later combines several multiple-exposure photographs together to form a single image. [Official Website]
