Whenever I arrive in new places and cities I always try to capture the local architecture using a double exposure technique. This 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.
