This series of fake found photographs were created to fill a void left by the digital revolution. I’ve been collecting found photographs from pavements, bins, boot sales etc since 2001. Each year finding less and less, this is because of the ubiquity of digital cameras and camera phones. When digital files are deleted they are lost forever. The images in this series were made by merging my own negatives together with blank film, that has been intentionally damaged/weathered by leaving it in my garden. I want to utilise the found snapshot aesthetic of degraded analogue film, towards the possibility of increasing the emotional and psychological resonance of the image. https://stevenchandlerimages.portfoliobox.net/...
