Artist Statement - It takes 8 minutes for the light of the sun to travel to
Earth, light is the connection through the sequence of the pages in this book and the
story that you read in image form.
Title Description - 8 Minutes is the most recent release from Telfer Stokes' Weproductions, a press dedicated to the exploration of the book form to structure visual narrative. The title refers to the time it takes light from the sun to reach Earth. Light is the subject of this book and Stokes follows it with his camera as it plays over buildings, streets and passageways in a sun-drenched city. The interplay of shadow and rich color, abstraction and architecture and the movement of pattern over smooth surfaces tell the eloquent tale of light’s life force. 29 June 2009 (printedmatter.org).
