What the Luck, 2021


When talking about photography, many consider that the creation of a great image is an instance of luck. Many “What-ifs” come into play in film photography.  By deliberately disturbing the film's chemistry during processing, I make it impossible to recover the images as they were shot;  producing varied unpredictable outcomes. Luck and chemistry also intertwine in relationships, which depend on time and place, acceptance and uncountable factors that are out of reach of those involved In this series, when looking at the images in succession and backward, divergent narratives are presented. The mediator of this story is the chemical imbalance caused by the film soup, the colors were created by chance, nonetheless adding to the subtext, guiding the viewer through the characters' point of view.
