Whether it’s the lure of reminiscence, the promise of the future, or scientific fascination, the fantasy of time travel holds universal appeal. The laws of physics suggest that time does not actually flow in any particular direction and therefore we might—someday—travel through time as freely as we travel through space.
This issue of Conveyor Magazine explores time travel by employing the camera as our time machine; a tool that alters our temporal experience and transforms perception of time and space. A photograph eternally suspends a moment, leaving behind a document that we may then return to and investigate again and again. Photographs allow us to reassemble and manipulate the sequence of events. Timelines are thus reconstructed, the past is altered, new histories are created, and the distant future is just a shortcut away.
