This artist proof presents a collection of large-scale negative prints. We could say it’s both an homage to the end of the analog negative and also an exploration of the nature of colour that medium allows.
The pictures were taken with an IPhone camera and they are mostly of vegetation. They are hunting and strange landscapes and seascapes full of intriguing colours and shapes.
