Hiroyuki Masuyama makes time a subject - in a genre for which consideration of time is already characteristic. The artist, however, is concerned with positioning time and the human being who lives in it. He himself as a photographer is located in the present. However, by citing the pre-impressionist painter J.M.W. Turner - in other works in this group of works, the romanticist C.D. Friedrich also preferably comes into play - as a source, he not only goes to the painter's time, but also seeks out the places where Turner had stood when he painted his works. In this image, it is Rome, a third level, that the photographer places himself in to see the original sites Turner had in mind. In hundreds of digital photographs, Masuyama recreates the scenery to bring the mood of the quoted painting into the present. To alienate this veritable appropriation again, the artist uses light boxes with LED lighting, which heightens the impression of this journey through time.
