When I was a kid, my father always said, “Enjoy the moment”. The idea stuck with me all these years, because it was a concept that I didn’t seem to be able to grasp. Photography was a way that I found to capture a moment, in order to understand what it was and maybe find out how to enjoy it.

After a while, I understood that photography only allowed me to capture instants. Even a long exposure photo is only a blurred instant.

So, I decided to hack photography, getting the technique behind movie making and applying it to my photos.

Photographing the same instant several times, and then slicing and dicing the results and mixing it all together chronologically. In this way, I was able to capture a moment, not showing what exactly happened, but at least showing that a moment happened.

In another life Diego Kuffer studied business and received a postgraduate degree in psychoanalytic semiotics. He later worked in the marketing industry for ten years. Luckily, Diego finally came to his senses and gave all of that up to start a new life as a brazilian photographer. You can follow Diego on instagram @dkuffer.
