I discovered double exposures over a decade ago by accident whilst shooting with my first vintage camera, a British 1950’s Coronet 6×6 roll film point and shoot.
My adventures with this sturdy little black bakelite camera were rather short lived… after the first roll the shutter mechanisim broke. On the plus side, after I developed the film I found that I had accidentally double exposed a couple of frames. This led to me buying my first Holga (the first of many) and starting my obsession/fascination with multiple exposures.
Fast forward to 2016 and I have a Fujifilm X-Pro1 that can produce double exposures.
This particular series Urban Abstraction was produced around some Sydney’s most iconic harbourside landmarks using my X-Pro1 and a home-made splitzer. The end result? Some rather surrealistic, otherworldly abstract landscapes.
