Sculley 8.jpg



Photographer: Stephen Sculley

Country: Australia

Kinesis a movement that lacks directional orientation and depends upon the intensity of stimulation (Merriam-Webster) Using Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) I photograph Melbourne in motion. These photographs present an impression of city life. My goal is to capture the rhythm and feeling of a scene - blurred lines, ghostly figures and disappearing shapes somehow manifest the invisible energy of day to day life. The uncertainty of working with motion blur can bring both disappointment and surprise and I’m continually drawn to explore these possibilities. I see motion blur as a creative and energising form of photography.


 I live in Melbourne, make electronic music, video art and photozines. I shoot primarily black and white photos to capture the interactions, anomalies and drama of everyday life. I like to explore tone, texture and blur to create impressionistic works.
