I've long been interested in the way motion and slow shutter speeds combine to create unseen landscapes. Arcs of stars in the night sky. Phantom contours of wind-blown leaves. Streaks of rushing water. In this book of photographs, I take the standard photographic formula – motionless camera and moving subject – and stand it on its head. By moving the camera and its open shutter through a (usually) stationary landscape, I've found a completely different world.

Robert Eckhardt is a 19th century photography dealer and 21st century fine art photographer. Originally trained as an avian ecologist, past careers include assistant professor of vertebrate biology, editor at a large New York publishing house, computer book author, and magazine contributing editor.

He started photographing in his teens, but put his cameras away (for good, he thought) 25 years ago. The convergence of computers, cameras, and digital imagery prompted him to start photographing again in 2003. His current photographic interests include panoramas, night photography, and slow shutter speeds.
