“In the reshuffled time of these composite photographs, play prevails over competition, the stands are empty and the fields are full, whole games are shown out of sequence. I rearrange the archetypes of sports into new patterns,” says American photographer Pelle Cass of his Crowded Fields series.
The full-to-bursting images are based on thousands of pictures, brought together in a final photograph that is kind of like a still timelapse. “I change nothing, not a pixel, only select what to keep and what to omit. It all happened just as you see it, just not at the same time.”
