new works #9, Feb 2015.’

(scanned 06/02/15)

35 mm scanned film negative.

This image is from a series of experimentations with failed film negatives,  acetone, watercolour and other instruments found in the studio. In these experiments I manipulated the film negative with what ever found objects were at hand, then further effected them with the application of  acetone or/and watercolour. These were then scanned and some photoshop manipulation was done (of exposure, brightness, contrast etc).

anonymous asked:

how you upload your photos? your camera is analog? how does it work?

i get the film developed and the film place is nice enough to email me the scanned photos. but you can also get prints and scan them yourself, get a negatives scanner to scan the developed negatives from your film, or get them uploaded onto a CD

35 mm scanned film negative.

This image is from a series of experimentations with failed film negatives, acetone and watercolour. In these experiments I cut up previously effected negatives (by acetone and watercolour), doubled up/overlapped film in the scanner, and did some photoshop manipulation of exposure, brightness, contrast etc. Often the scanner produced unexpected results, which was very exciting and dare I say ‘collaborative!’.
