About the Project

These 6 half-frame photographs were taken in intentional pairs in Los Angeles, California, Fenwick Island, Delaware, and Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Each pair allows for the exploration of more space and time within a traditional 35mm full frame, the time passing between each shot designated by the black line splitting the photographs in two. The camera used was an Olympus PEN-EE2 35mm and the film was Kodak Portra 400 and Ilford HP5.
