Lovely sets of photos by Saul Leiter was published in the Andrey Zeigarnik‘s and Dasha Kuzmina‘s blogs. But I want to share with you my favorite pictures. It’s amazing but true – a very good photographer made almost exclusively vertical frames.
In the second part of this series, let me share with you pictures pictures taken on negative film. In my opinion, they are substantially different from from scanned slides that were included in the collection Superposition. Part 1 – the mood, color and contrast. So I decided to split the entire series at least three components. In the next final part I’m going to show results of my experiment with digital photos. It very interesting how I’m mixing them randomly. And another part is zero, such as Intro, with scans of 25-year-old and the text, which will bring together all three components into into a single whole project.
It’s not classic multi exposure. Photographers usually combine two frames without rewinding the film. That is a photographer in general knows which frames overlap and builds appropriately frame. I have the same frames are aligned randomly. That is in the process of shooting, I have no idea about doubles the frame overlay and what happens. There is something magical.
Alchemy is simple – I’m shooting a film twice, for example, first in one country and then another. In this shoot many films, and then run your hand into the bag, choose the first available and charge film again.
I have a text about why I do it, but until now did not want to go into details. While this is just an experiment, its interesting to me as a surprise, accidentally mixing immiscible, the visuals and the very process of witchcraft.

About the workshop

This trip is at the same time a travel experience, an adventure, a way to meet soul-mates, a practical master-class in genre photography and a joint work on an art project.
