Backrooms




Some new pictures from backrooms of groceries, thrift stores.
Also an interesting example of 4×5 vs. medium format. With the top 2 being doing w/ my Linhof 4×5. Still a bit new to that camera and it continually amazes me how different a 4×5 sees than smaller cameras, even when lenses are approximately the same focal length.

    Which linhof are using, and what medium format camera do you use? The work looks really great. I also work between large and medium formats. It is very surprising how the two view so differently.

    Thanks so much.
    I have an old Technika IV, and a Contax 645. The Linhof has a Schneider 120 lens, the Contax a 55.

    Brian,

    You really need to slow down. You’re making the rest of us look a little bad.

    well,
    do you know Forced Entertainment?
    There is something about this series that’s incredibly appealing in a Forced Entertainment kind of way…

    The particular show was a durational performance called “12am: awake and looking down”. but a lot of their work has this “backstage” thing about them. yes, now i think that’s it: backstage.
