Going West Stop-Motion Animation

This is what 8 months of work with a 10A scalpel blade looks like. London’s Andersen M studio put this together for the NZ Book Council.

    If you are feeling this aesthetic, you have to check out Brian Dettmer’s work.
    Saw a show of his in Chelsea, NYC. You have to see these things in real life, you can’t get your jaw to close in their presence.

Creating photographs without a subject or a camera may sound ridiculous but the resulting large-scale images by photographer Brittany Nelson speak for themselves. “Alternative Process” is the result of various experimentations with historical photographic processes like Tintype, Daguerrotype, Mordancage, and Halochrome. More images below. Also, video of Nelson talking about the chemistry processes behind her work!
