the guns of Brixton

See me (nearly get) shot under the shower.
This picture in honour to ‘The Guns of Brixton’. Can’t remember ever hearing the original song of The Clash, but I fell in love with the version of Nouvelle Vague

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!

carcassonne

Took these in the medieval city of Carcassonne. I used my wooden box camera ( focal length 80mm) and Ilford MGIV paper.I flashed the paper several weeks before to reduce contrast… with little success. But I like the effect. It’s like history is clearly visible & the present surrounding it is blackened out.

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.
