ethereal and otherworldly, intraterrestrials is a series of images by experimental artist bagrad badalian that explores the creative use of long exposure photography. described as a ‘quest’ to find alien-like creatures, badalian has employed the technique to capture the subjects as they move within the frame, resulting in beautifully blurred photos that look almost like paintings.

since practising photography,badalian has been fascinated by the potential of long exposure and the intriguing effects it can reap. by slowing down the shutter speed of the camera, the artist can break down the movement of time and control the aesthetic and imaginative potential of chance.

badalian explains, ‘I create my images by studying the expression of the hazardous interactions that can arise between my photographic subjects and the different light sources that I decide to put in my scenes. by exposing these elements to meticulously prepared experiments, I can try to understand their equivocal language, provoke a discourse and make it intelligible, malleable, revealing forms and colors only residing in an invisible field, a hidden reality, escaping the succession of instants imposed by our perception of time.’
