Not amused, anymore - 2015
The colors of abandonment
The so-called Volksprater, a huge amusement park in Vienna, is visited each year by millions of people old and young, local and foreign. Its main attraction, the ferris wheel, was built in 1896/97 and is today one of the landmarks of the Austrian capital.
This series documents the backside of the park and shows old entertainment businesses that aren't used anymore. The magic of those pictures lies in their colors, which are slightly off. This effect was created through the use of expired Kodakchrome 64 film, a medium that's hard to find - and even more difficult to develop, because the chemistry that's needed for the process isn't manufactured anymore.
By using a different formula, however, it is still possible to obtain interesting results, but it is impossible to precisely predict the color rendition. This, if course, adds to the intended atmosphere of the series.
All pictures of the series were produced with Nikon F80, 35/2.
