finding gems


The process of reviewing all the photoshoots of the chipboard factory has been fascinating.  With more time to reflect, I discovered some gems from the original film shoots back in November.  These were shot on 35mm film so contained some well composed captures in landscape format.  This is useful as the Kallax piece, in fact all the pieces using Ikea furniture items, need images that are not square.  In this example, I have deliberately edited quite underexposed from the digital scan of the film negative.  The reduced highlights bring out the textures of the riverbank and the grey cloak of a sky.  The reflected light on the three factory structures shine out.

All images used can now be from film – it is consistent.
