The antique appearance of this set of photographs occurs by utilizing two separate cameras. The first is a modern digital camera that is placed facing straight down into the viewfinder section of the second camera, a 1950’s era twin lens reflex. This vintage camera is far from “state of the art”. It is used as a vastly imperfect filtering device and whose lens is shaped rather irregularly. Light bends and refracts extensively off of its surface anomalies and the resulting image is transformed into a more generalized atmospheric vision. All of the imperfections are part of the process and are intentional.
