Today, we’re featuring a set of experimental film images from photographer Wilf Shaw. Wilf explores creative techniques, such as double exposures, light leaks, and overlapping frames, to create beautiful and intricate imagery. Here are a few words from Wilf about this process…
These experimental images were essentially produced by accident. I found a roll of cheap, 1600 ISO film lying on my desk which I didn’t remember buying and thought I may as well shoot it. Once I got it developed, I found out I had in fact shot on it before, about 2 or 3 years ago. The results worked out well, photos of contrasting places merging into each other and people and places from different times in my life contrasting each other. Of course the original results came in one continuous flow, but the points the (cheap, local pharmacy) developers chose to cut it further add, I feel, to the surreal, dream-like feelings of the photos with multiple shots appearing in some images.
