I've always been drawn to art. Not just photography, but also paintings. My favorite painter by far is El Greco. I had the chance to see many of his works while I was in Spain and especially in the city of Toledo.
I've been thinking a lot of film and paintings from the High Renaissance and especially the Mannarism period. Sometimes I think of film as old oil paintings. The cracks you find in the aging oils are like the grains of the film. The lush and emotional colors that El Greco once painted with are like the lifelike colors Kodak Portra is able to produce. When I discovered El Greco's work I had never seen such colors, depth, and emotion. I'm not sure if El Greco inspired me, or if I had stumbled upon an artist whom used colors and light that I also searched for when I myself was creating art.
I definitely challenged myself when shooting this roll. I shot angles I don't normally shoot and part of this roll I focused on more detailed shots of the human body. With film I just don't shoot, I create and I believe that's why I'm drawn to film. I like each shot to be unique.
