Dirty hand-developed stuff.

Hope you enjoy the watching!








Donore Boxing Club

With my Zorky 4K, old russian rangefinder, I took a black and white roll of double exposed photographs of a boxing club of one of the poorest parts of Dublin. Scanned with Lomo folders.

Double Exposed Poland

These are photographs that I took almost a year ago in Bydgoszcz, Poland, within pauses from the always exciting Art of Cinematography Festival Camerimage.
I shoot the whole film and then roll back and shoot again. I use the same feeling to shoot subjects quickly and achieve something that randomly will work together eventually. Chances, applying the Dadaist lesson.
Lately I also use the Lomo folders for scanning pictures strips to have the whole film as a sequence as a further option.
The pictures have been taken with a 70's Russian rangefinder camera called Zorky 4K and expired film.
