Alternative Photography

By technical glitch, fluke, or pure chance… images can be created that go beyond what we imagine in our minds. Over the past few months, I have been experimenting with the possibilities of film photography. This featured image was shot on a Pentax film camera, at the National Gallery of Victoria. A slight nudge, or ‘incorrect’ setting produced the remarkable effect of the famous stain glass windows seeming to collapse in, blending their colours, whilst the male subject remains still in the chaos of colour. I am motivated by this very possibility in film photography – that no image will ever be produced the same way twice, creating a unique work each time.
