Photography

“Swirls” is a series born out of a desire for both aesthetic and technical experimentation. The images are produced by inserting a layer of paper on a medium format film in a dark room. The film is then used as a regular film in a camera. The light passes through the arabesques drawn on the paper, which transform the photo in an almost random way. It is a unique technique, which combines luck and precision, the purity of the photographic method and the unpredictability of drawing.
