I created this photograph by combining two 35mm analog slides. I call this series "remixes," as I often use other people's slides layered with my own photographs. I do not use Photoshop or any digital transformation--the slides are simply layered by hand and then printed. The title indicates where and when each slide was made.

Alex is a photographic artist living and working in San Francisco. He skillfully captures enticing patterns, textures, and shapes that he encounters in daily life. Alex often “remixes” these images, a self-developed process in which he takes two pieces of analog film, layers them on a slide, and photographs them. The resulting images have an atypical depth, and require the viewer to embark on a visual investigation upon encountering each dynamic photograph.
