Artist Charlie Kitchen looks at analog photography through a new lens

It’s uncommon today to hear that taking a single photograph can take an entire hour, but visual artist Charlie Kitchen shows us how his artful work is worth the wait.

Kitchen’s photographs are of beautiful landscapes that appear to be behind floating shapes that jump off the screen. Making sure to not expose the entire sheet of film, he inserts a sheet of paper with a shape cut out of it in order to capture just a portion of the image. He repeats the process until he exposes the necessary images to complete the photograph.

His style is completely analog with the exception of his minimal use of Photoshop to color correct his photographs once they’re taken. In today’s world of advanced technology and accelerated production times, Kitchen’s approach is a refreshing one.
