Abandoned Gas Station


This photograph is of an abandoned gas station in rural Louisiana.

It is print from an actual film negative scan. The camera used was plastic lens Lomography camera. It is modified to take regular 35mm film. Because of the larger exposure area inside, the film was able to be exposed over the sprocket holes found on the edges of 35mm negatives. Expired Kodak film was used on this subject, which along with the fading light produced the interesting coloring.


Custom designed frame. This frame concept is created from antique thread spools (bobbins) from an old textile mill. The high resolution negative scan is directly printed onto metal. The dyes are infused directly into a specially coated aluminum sheet causing the images take on an almost magical luminescence.

Each wooden display is unique in its own way. They have been left in their vintage state to reflect the subject matter. This includes varying degrees of weathering, slight chips, tarnish, and paint specs.
