Last night I met Christophe Dillinger at his talk at 6/8 Cafe in Birmingham.
An experimental photographer and professional funny French man, Christophe explained his alternative techniques and his analogue philosophy. I really loved his 'swirl series' - here is how he does it…
"Various implements (pencils, sticks, toothbrushes), ink, and pigments) are used to mark thin paper, which is then inserted on the film in the darkroom. The modified films are then used in camera as a normal film."
Yes, I don’t fully understand it either.
Christophe runs Square Magazine which is an amazing (and free) new photography resource. Square is putting on a show for one month from the 16th of April at Birmingham City University Parkside Campus (the one by Millennium Point). It sounds great - get the flyer here.
