Entry Description:

In this project, photography is not really something with which I examine the world around
me. It is the instrument I use to examine the world inside. By exposing my film multiple
times I am able to surreally fill jars with natural environments. I get to play with the
childish idea of conserving my surroundings as they are today. Including some environments
from my childhood in the South of Finland, that I am trying to release my longing for.

The executing of the concept is done by using a double exposure technique inspired from
the film epoch. This to help preserve the beauty in analog alteration, as I am conserving
my precious landscapes.
