I hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 8 years ago and carried 3 cameras in my bag, including my 1978 Hasselblad. Cut to 2015, where I have a fridge full of film that I’ve been ‘working on’ for a few years (I do double exposures and re-shoot rolls at different countries and times of days, see an example here). I had a few 120 rolls of film that I shot recently and took them to get developed. To my surprise, one of the rolls was from my trip to Peru!
I remember taking these pictures, specifically ’cause I had found the courage to ask locals for a photo. I remember being disappointed when I didn’t get these images back when I developed all my film from that trip. Here are a few images from this roll, I’m planning on gathering the full series again and updating my website with them 🙂
I have a show this coming July at Mighty Tanaka Studio with 2 talented Photographers (stay tuned for more details!!). I will be showing my latest collection of in-camera multiple exposures shot with 35mm film. I used both my grandfather’s olympus OM-1 and re-shot most of it with my trusty Lomo LC-A. I never use photoshop, what you see is how they look straight from the negative scans. I’m not hating on photoshop, in fact, I use it everyday for work, but with my photography I much rather go as traditional as I can. Its a lot more fun this way.
Below is one of the latest multiple exposures. This particular photo was shot at downtown Barcelona late one night. On this trip I experimented with the Olympus, the Lomo and my ’78 Hasselblad. I’m very much looking forward showing everyone my latest work.
