Fuji TX2 (XPAN) + Ilford FP4+
This is a very experimental series. In order to bring my plant double exposures into the studio, I purchased a flash, and wanted to roadtest it before the big session I have planned in a couple of weeks. So I asked a friend to act as a model. The quick and dirty double exposure was double portraits. One was underexposed and the other was exposed properly. The results are undeniably bizarre, but I’ll share my favorite from the series this week.
Milk Tea Posse
There’s a lot of outdoor life in Hong Kong, and a lot of street food. When I’m cruising for photos, I often try to find more than one person eating the same thing or doing the same thing. Here, I have three guys drinking gallons of milk tea. A lot more interesting than just one guy, don’t you think?

I had this idea of doing a new series of « three monkeys » reminiscent of the ones I did in my 1930s ghost set. This time I wanted to go for postmodern creepy with gags and duct tape and all. Unfortunately, I didn’t realise that in the studio with no backdrop the point of doing a cloning approach was non-existent, so I used the photos differently. This is one that I particularly like. Fox is a great model with fiery ginger hair, and even with the heavy desaturation it still comes through.

Continuing with the Chicago Girls series. This week starts with a slew of girls who looked positively regal. Both their costumes, hairstyles and attitudes looked aristocratic.
