Lately I’ve been exploring the concept of what I’ve been calling “Reject Art.” Started by my Reject Heart. It’s all about making something beautiful accidentally or finding the art in something that didn’t turn out “right.”
I finally developed some Holga film (I usually wait so long, I forget what I’ve shot and it’s like Christmas when I get them back!) One of the reasons I love the Holga so much, it’s not perfect. But my recent developments, were even more un-perfect.. But the more and more they come out wrong, the more I’m loving them. These are all medium format film and even that didn’t quite turn out right. Only part of the side of the film showed up.
Nothing even came out on these ones, but I’m in love with the numbers and the colors.
This is a little more typically Holga but still cropped off. From one of my favorite weddings.
From this rad wedding. Even though these didn’t turn out, I gave them to the bride and she loved them.
A merry go round in Perris (looks totally creepy to me) and a building in Paris, Ireland or London.
Totally wacky, from this Engagement Shoot.
From my trip to Utah in December.
This is closer to the look I’m going for with my Holga, but this is also (accidentally) double exposed.
