Stemming from a earlier of daring accumulating, photographer Christoffer Relander makes use of mason jars as vessels to grab the environments that surrounded him all through his childhood in Finland. The mission, Jarred & Displaced, makes use of double exposures shot on medium format film to combine pristine footage of jars with black and white landscapes, gathering scenes shot inside forests, neighborhoods, and on excessive of steep ridges. Each of the images is completely analog as Relander decided to eschew all digital processes for the gathering.

“With analog quite a few exposures I’m able to manipulate my footage in-digicam,” talked about Relander to Colossal, “this problem was not created or manipulated in an exterior software program program equal to Photoshop.”

The wooded landscapes captured in his footage are principally from the countryside inside the south of Finland, an environment Relander missed and wished to revisit as an grownup. You’ll see a behind-the-scenes check out Relander exploring these scenes in a quick film directed by Anders Lönnfeldt beneath.
