Großartiges Feature vom Matter Magazine auf Medium über den in Berlin lebenden Fotografen Adam Magyar und seine selbst zusammengehackte Kameratechnologie. Der Mann hat in der Vergangenheit vor allem mit SlitScan experimentiert und arbeitet derzeit mit einer HighSpeed-Kamera in der U-Bahn, oben das Video vom Berliner Alexanderplatz, in seinem Vimeo-Channel gibt es noch zwei Clips aus New York und Tokyo. Unbedingt die Arbeiten auf seiner Website ansehen und dort die About-This-Project-Videos. Groß!

Magyar extracts drama from an infinitesimal flash of time. “I want to capture something that happens in milliseconds, something that you don’t even realize took place,” he told me. “I’m extending the moments—the present, the now—because as humans we live only in the past and the future. But the only existence we have is now, and that is something that we don’t even consider.”

The breathtaking clarity of the Stainless videos is also the result of the most challenging software code he has ever had to write. In his experiments with industrial cameras, Magyar found that the image quality was ideal for measuring speed, distance, and volume, but not entirely suitable for the demands of an artist. He wrote complex programs to improve the quality of images shot in conditions of low lighting and poor contrast. Another problem was image noise—columns, rows, lines, and other random distortions, a typical issue with high-sensitivity digital sensors. He spent nearly two years, on and off, developing noise-reduction software, solving one problem only to confront a new one. “The engineers don’t have to deal with this, but I do. I cannot sleep. I’m working on this for months, and I don’t stop. You find a new problem, and you have to find a solution.”
