Tree Island by Staged Tree Island by Staged
Camera Obscura shot.

This is a repro of a Baryt positive. It turned out fabulous, I'm still amazed how sharp and brilliant the results are. There's a slight distortion and light-decrease at the edges, which gives the picture a very surreal touch.

I'm totally in love with film, special techniques and the darkroom again. I did most of my pictures digitally during the last 2 years; it feels wonderful to be back on bw film, printing on Baryt.

My latest images are branded by my current state of mind - they are a bit lonely, hush, soft. It feels good to abandon the bright colours.


This piece is part of a series: [link] [link]

This is a lovely piece of work that feels like it has came straight from a dream or some half-forgotten memory: it has that rich emotive feeling about that I am particularly fond of. This is great stuff, without doubt.

It's actually just a bunch of trees in the middle of a meadow. ;)
