Bottled Memories of Childhood Landscapes Using Double Exposure Photography
For the last three years, photographer Christoffer Relander has been revisiting his childhood environments to “capture” them into this collection, an ongoing series entitled Jarred & Displaced. Most environments are from where he grew up, in the countryside in the south of Finland, where his roots still lie. As a container for the environments, Relander uses jar bottles.
All works are intentional double exposures shot ‘in-camera’, meaning this project was not created or layered in external software like Photoshop. The resulting images are not put into physical jars (as is misunderstood sometimes); it’s two exposed shots that blend ‘in-camera’ into a single image. Below you can find highlights from the series and you can find many more at the links below.
