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 images where solid buildings and walls start floating and colliding with each other, mingling their patterns and colors into a new reality where down is up as well.
I have been photographing and documenting the world around me with various photographic equipment for some 20 years now, always looking for a new motif or experimenting with a new technique. Using the wrong chemicals to develop slide film (E6->E41 aka cross processing) has been a go-to technique for all my analog work for example.
The first double exposure was made with a cheap plastic camera and I fell in love with the potential straight away. Since I have not ceased to improve quality on all levels, from initial capture to print.
I work with 35mm and medium format film cameras and a full frame digital camera to make my images. The images on film are scanned then cleaned and corrected digitally but the composition is never altered after the capture. All double exposures with the digital camera are also made on the spot.
The body of work is far from being completed and I keep learning new tricks and refining my technique.
It is photography in a very pure form, the motif is written by light, but in an unusual way and it shows you the effect of overlapping scenes rather than a single motif. The viewer's sense of shape and form is constantly put on the wrong foot by following familiar lines that lead the eye into a field of morphed and merged architecture. It is a highly graphic form of photography that holds promises of new and unique views on landscapes and architecture .
The photos are offbeat, abstract and vibrant and are sure to be a centerpiece and conversation starter for visitors when displayed on the wall.
