Estate

“These negatives are taped up on a sheet of glass and photographed in Northern Italy, at and around the now famous vacation destination, Lake Garda.

By shooting the negatives on slide film (thus making my own positive) and then enlarging this positive in the darkroom, the resulting picture is in negative of real life. Sky becomes dark, shadows become highlights, it is a classic aesthetic. But the negative being held up in the image is also reversed, resulting in a positive image. The present is reversed and in a way nullified, and the past returns to the forefront, becoming the focus.

There is zero digital manipulation of these images, the negatives are photographed on location.

Estate means a property one owns or a legal position in English. In Italian it means summer”   Andreas Olsen “Estate”
