"Lightscapes: Aurora 5" by Armand Dijcks

Rotterdam photographer Armand Dijcks announces the launch of "Lightscapes", a series of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) photographs. "Lightscapes" literally captures time in motion as images — of a chair, kitchen mixer or piece of clothing — are transformed into something unexpected during photographing.

Curiosity led Dijcks to try several techniques before he learned about ICM photography, a technique through which images can be composed by intentionally moving the camera in all three dimensions while the shutter is open.

Through the series Dijcks is exploring different layers of reality by stretching time to see what is there but not obvious at first glance. "This kind of photography is quite liberating in that one has very little control over the outcome," he says. "It makes one look at the world in a completely different, less literal way because it reveals something hidden below the visible surface — a parallel world that exists on a different time scale — and it changes every time one catches a glimpse of it."

Working for years at the intersection of marketing, media and the web, Dijcks is using social media and the Internet to expose the public to his work rather than relying on art galleries and other traditional art showcasing venues.

Shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and 50mm f/1.4 lens, "Lightscapes" prints are available printed on high gloss aluminum and Kodak Endura Metallic paper through his website. (

Armand Dijcks (1970) studied architecture and worked in real estate before taking his experience with him in 2002 to start Liquid Earth, a company working at the intersection of marketing, media and the web.

Using video and photography, Dijcks creates mashups of photo and video expressing the interesting stories of his clients. Many of the projects he has worked on are related to the exploration of our planet and communicating stories of rugged and inaccessible places. He has worked with polar explorers, companies including Ben & Jerry's and organizations including the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). "Lightscapes" is part of his personal work.
