Valery Lippens strives to create in his series ‘Haecceity’ a more accurate portrayal of our perceptions. Lippens captures commuters in their turbulent spontaneity rushing from one train to the next and creates one large image comprised of approximately 350 miniature photos. He photographs people crossing paths without ever colliding and frames them side-by-side in a chronological order, so that the viewer can follow a single person or group as they walk from one frame to the next. When captured on film, Lippens’ aerial perspective of the chaotic commuters creates the illusion of small black ants marching in a line. Challenging the idea of a single static viewpoint, Lippens found a way to more accurately reflect our perception of the world – one that is often formed by incessantly scanning people and places around us.
