In Double is a surreal photographic series that reveals famous landmarks in a way they haven't been seen before.
Exclusively shot on medium format film with all the manipulations created in camera by using the double exposure technique. In this digital age of Photoshop viewers struggle to comprehend how the images are created without its aid.
In modern Western Society we’ve lost our connection to nature, and we treat it with such little respect. As most of us know, we’re causing the planet great harm by the industrial farming practices, fast fashion, dirty energy, fossil fuels and overpopulation, among other issues.
This series juxtaposes the beauty of man made structures with flowers, trees and the ocean, with the hope people will spend some mindful moments appreciating the the textures, colours and shapes. I used architecture in this series to emphasise how capable we are as a human race. When we collaborate and work together we are able to achieve amazing feats. It exemplifies the need for balance in a modern society. We share this Earth, and moderation is key to its future.
Author: My name is Zac Patsalides, I'm a British Photographer currently based in New Zealand/Australia.
I'm a multi skilled photographer; I showcased my first exhibition at the age of 16, and went on to create a series of Daguerreotypes when I was 18. My most popular series is 'On the Road' which follows multiple motorbike trips through Vietnam. It won Asian Geographic Youth Photographer of the year and was published internationally.
I'm currently working on a series called 'In Double'. It's a surreal double exposure photography series taken on medium format film that imposes landmarks with local flora.
I have a passion for shooting with film and using alternative methods.
At the age of 15 I was gifted an old Pentax film camera and my love of photography was born.
Instantly I was passionate about the process of film; the anticipation, waiting to see what forgotten photos you would find during development; seeing the first image appear in the developing tray in an almost magical way; savouring each shot; happy accidents; and learning how to create an outstanding image the hard way.
