1xRun Thru Interview

Dan Mountford – Self Pavilion

1xRun: When was Self Pavilion drawn/created?          

Dan Mountford: I created this only in December 2011.

1xRun: Tell us how the idea and execution came about?   

Dan Mountford: The process of creating this image was born out of experimentation with analog photography. I played with a technique known as double exposure—which is usually in images from toy cameras such as the Holga— as a creative effect or sometimes mistake which is caused by the film negative being exposed twice on the same frame.  It can be very hit and miss, as well as expensive and time consuming to get good results. Discovering how to isolate parts of the image came from analyzing experimental results and using a key photographic element to my advantage. 1xRun: How long did the piece take?  

Dan Mountford: As I said it can be very hit and miss, but this one came about naturally as I knew what to expect from photographing these subjects before.
