Pictures of Time
Photography by David Alexander
Graphic Design by Tommy Steele
The photographs in PICTURES OF TIME explore the intersection of art, science, and, perhaps, philosophy. Each page turn expresses a different view of time in the ordinary world, raising questions such as what is time? can time be seen?
"To see time is to see how all of life is connected, how everything alive is simply different versions of the same basic stuff, how everything alive and natural is one."
In his commercial career, David Alexander photographed the Eagles' Hotel California album cover, the Blues Brothers album covers and movie poster, The Terminator movie poster, and many other classic record album covers and movie posters.
Tommy Steele, the Grammy-winning music industry art director and designer for over 40 years with packaging for such artists as Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Tina Turner and Foo Fighters, also authored several pop culture recollectible books such as “The Hawaiian Shirt” and “Bowl-O-Rama”.
From PICTURES OF TIME:
In the picture collections that follow, there are pictures of people,
trees, and flowers in similar or familiar shapes. There are
pictures of groupings of people, trees, and flowers organized into
related configurations. Flowers and trees that reflect sexuality.
Plants and people in similar rhythmic forms. Plants, people,
and birds paired in related ways. Flowers and trees aging
in ways that are familiar to us. The PICTURES OF TIME
project looks at these connections, commonalities, similarities,
reflections - these samenesses that reveal time in living things.
