ECLECTIC - SHANGHAI PEOPLE RUSH HOUR
"Shanghai People Rush Hour" taken in Shanghai with my 35mm film camera applying the double exposure technique using a 100 ISO colour film is part of my ECLECTIC series of double exposure photographs of Street Environments of different cities, countryside and beaches from around the world. Where each city has its own distinctive pace of elements, circumstances, colours; an array of miscellanea that shape what we call memory; a human quality as ephemeral as ever-changing. All pictures where taken with a 35mm film camera using colour film, applying the double exposure technique, creating a balance of colours, shapes and symmetries.
