A toy camera records a flawed and fantastical world. I idealize these fractured moments, removing the camera’s characteristic flaws. The synthetic result documents my Faustian search for the inspired moment of capture and the hidden details surrounding it.
Dreamlike documentation pulled from a Holga and C-41 film. These 81 megapixel images explore the space between an experience and a memory. Environments are painstakingly reconstructed, distilling the moment of capture from the myriad of Holga characteristics. Lens distortion is corrected, uneven exposure is adjusted, and frames are recropped. The image is rebuilt in the same fashion a childhood memory may be recalled - details (often idealized) slowly emerge with care and patience.
Reality is caught at the moment of documentation. And like the mind, it becomes malleable with time.
