Purple Shores

 

After eight months of waiting, it finally arrived. I ordered Lomography Purple Color Negative film back in November with the hopes of using it on multiple trips I took this year. The colors for this film distort the natural colors of the subject to give an alternate result. Similar to infrared films used during WWII, this film drastically changes greens and yellows to bright pinks and deep purples. Instead of shooting all landscape photography or street photography with these rolls, I wanted to shed some new light on pieces from the Origins and Binary Collections to give a different look at them. Not only that, I wanted to shoot near the beach but still be secluded, so we found an abandoned beach along the Delaware Bay. Here’s a look at some of the frames from that day, and I hope they help you look at colors differently.
