Crowded Fields


Pelle Cass is an American photographer from Brookline, Massachusetts. His work has been collected by the Fogg Art Museum, the Addison Gallery of American Art and the Peabody Essex Museum.

Pelle’s time-lapse composites, in the series “Crowded Fields,” are part of an ongoing collection of “reshuffled time, composite photographs.” He states, “To make the compositions, I put my camera on a tripod, take up to a thousand pictures, and compile selected figures into a final photograph that is kind of a still time-lapse. I change nothing—not a pixel. I simply select what to keep and what to omit. It all happened precisely as you see it, just not at the same time.”
