Abandoned Oregon Home


This photograph was taken in a small Oregon town.

It is print from an actual film negative scan. The camera used was a art-deco faced 1939 Falcon folding camera. It is a medium format camera that takes 120 film. With some modification, regular 35mm film was used for this photo. Because this is a smaller film format, the film was able to be exposed over the sprocket holes found on the edges of 35mm negatives. The film used in this instance is a defunct Italian brand. It has expired and produces soft coloring in subjects.


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.
