Through The Vintage Strip
(2017-18)
In my childhood Photography was completely dependent on Film camera.  I can remember after any event of my house, I got some film negatives along with the printed photographs. A negative is an image on a strip in which the lightest areas of the subject appear darkest and the darkest areas appear lightest. This reversed order occurs because the extremely light-sensitive chemicals a camera film must use to capture an image quickly enough for ordinary picture-taking are darkened, rather than bleached, by exposure to light and subsequent photographic processing.  The negatives were actually prime asset which helped to recover the photographs if they were destroyed somehow.  At that time the film negatives were much more interesting than photographs for me. The wedding album of my parents was misplaced somehow and very funny, I can still remember I used to see the negative films on my leisure hours—how my mother was looking like in her wedding ceremony and more interesting I found her in a different look through film negative.

Later when I stepped into this world of photography, I got completely digital gears. For our next generations, film negative will be only a story. The memory of film negatives fascinated me every time so I decided to recreate that film negative look—how they would have looked like if they had been captured in black and white film camera.
