Durational photography is a term coined by Los Angeles-based artist Owen Kydd to describe his works, which oscillate between still photography and video. Kydd’s tightly composed, fixed-shot video loops appear at first to be static images, but reveal subtle movement over time. In his studio, he creates window display compositions that are often inspired by the odd and stuck-in-time storefronts he finds while walking along Pico Boulevard and downtown L.A.
