Film woven into large format fabulousness.

Holy snapping duck shit.  I stumbled over the work of this amazing Korean photographer Seung Hoon Park who creates his amazing works of art using a very unusual technique.  He takes 8mm and 16mm film and weaves it into a sheet, suitable to put into a 8 x 10 large format camera, and then lugs that thing all around the world taking beautiful images of architecture and interior spaces.

If you’ve never worked in 5 x 4, or 8 x 10 large formats before, let me tell you… it’s a lot of hard work and takes a high level of proficiency to gain quality exposure and good focus.  Especially out of the studio – architecture?  Huge swings and roundabouts.  The level of difficulty here is only equally matched by the level of creativity demonstrated in trying something like this in the first place!

And the results are amazing…
