The Essence of Films – Condensing the cult movies into a single image

Condensing a complete movie into a single abstract image to extract its essence? This is the idea of the artist Jason Shulman, who captures whole cult films thanks to photographs in very long exposure, revealing the dominant tint of the movie and its global light. For this project soberly entitled Photographs of Films, he has condensed dozens of movies, from Alien to Alice in Wonderland through Clockwork Orange, The Shining or Taxi Driver. A new look at his cult pieces of pop culture.
