Dual World comes from W.E.B. DuBois’ concept of Double Consciousness. The title of the series is a play on the gaming term, dual wielding, for fighting with a weapon in each hand. The double exposure photos were made in-camera by shooting twice before advancing the film.
I shot Clover & Old Timber while walking with Osito Contreras. I chose the first exposure for the sunlight falling on some leaves and the texture of the snow over the grass. The second exposure because the red of the berries and blue of the sky made for an oddly patriotic scene. After development, the golden tickle-down effect of the leaves off the rooftop intrigued me, as did the implication of the home being below the waterline.
By the way, I get my color film developed at CSW Film Systems; the best kept secret in town.
