Experience, impression, and perception for David Fokos are linked and applied to his philosophy and working style. Using long exposures Fokos allows the camera to capture more than image but time, the camera can "average time," as he says. In this space of moments an imprint, not an instant, is made on film. The sea is the perfect example for this phenomenon. For Fokos, the sea is calming, tranquil, meditative. A single frame of the sea's actions would not translate these feelings; a long exposure, however calms, smooths, softens the sense of churning and we are left with an image that has achieved experiential viewing.

Fokos's frames are soft and warm, inviting and romantic. Space is abundant and the horizon calls to us to explore.
