37

Doc Ross
Christchurch

37 seconds doesn't sound very long, until you start to count it out; one thousand one, one thousand two, one thousand three... suddenly it seems an eternity; an eternity when time stands still but the earth heaves and shakes violently.

Created by Christchurch photographer Doc Ross, this collection is of 37 portraits of people affected by the February earthquake and their stories compressed into just as many words as there were seconds of shaking. For each portrait, each person was asked to sit completely still in a chair and support their head while a 37 second exposure multiple image was taken.
