treasure island

A friend, who has a good nose for these things, discovered a dusty & forgotten darkroom in an abandoned building.Most of the equipment was gone, but he found a small shipload of photographic paper. It must have been from the pre-Multigrade era, since most of it was Ilfospeed & Ilfobrom stuff, in different formats. Best thing is that he gave it all to me!

If these papers are still usable, I will have enough for the rest of my life.

So why not kick off with a tryptich paper negative on large format.                             Three sheets of 30 x 40 cm Ilfospeed grade 3 paper, scanned & inverted in PS

invasion has begun!

Oops! & now they’re shooting at me!

Luckily I found refuge in the MPL and took this 30 x 40 cm paper negative with it..

nice planet, we’ll take it

Tuesday morning.  I walked the streets, the fields, the city borders. Nothing unusual.  But it all sounded… too quiet. Can you believe I discovered a genuine UFO landing spot!

after the scream

A bridge, water, a man in dispair.  I took this pinhole on a railroad bridge over a swamp. The bridge is out of use for decades and long forgotten. Somehow the picture remembered me of The Scream. Or what could have happened after this famous scream.  A man walks away from the scene, tired, empty, relieved.

coffin poses

Intrigued by a picture of dead communards, I made a series of ‘coffin poses’. I used the apple butter tin-cam and gave the paper an extra bending inwards. The negative was thus shaped in a wave-form,to create an unnatural body shape and pose.
