Mijo is a magical dog
He is what he is
He is what he dreams
And every day is an adventure, to dream…
My current project “Mijo” is my musing of what goes on inside a dog’s mind. Dogs do dream, but what do they dream, are they happy dreams, exciting dreams, scary dreams?
It is shot entirely with a Holga camera on infrared film. When shooting with a Holga, I feel like I’m recording a mood as much as the image itself: always fleeting, tunnel vision, dark and distorted around the edges. It’s like capturing images in a dream. To further enhance this surreal and other worldly effect, I covered the lens with layers of plastic or crushed sheer fabric. Many of the images are natural multiple exposures.
As with all of my images, none of the images in this project have been digitally manipulated.
