Whenever I arrive in new places and cities I always try to capture the local architecture using a double exposure technique. This procedure creates new, impossible yet familiar looking universes where solid buildings and walls start to float and collide with each other, mingling their patterns and shapes into a new version of up and down.
The technique is simple: expose, rotate the camera and expose the same view a second time, overlapping the first still latent image and then develop that negative into a finished image.
The result is a mesmerizing new view on nature and architecture.
I started this series with a cheap plastic camera as a joke but got quickly convinced of the potential in imagemaking when I saw the results that came back from the lab..
Since then I have not ceased to improve technical quality and to innovate and variate on multiple levels, from initial capture to final print.
I work with 35mm and medium format film cameras and a full frame digital camera to make my images.
The composition of any of these images is never altered after the capture with a image manipulation program.
