Evans+Hulf work with the unusual combination of an 1888 ultra-large format camera, X-ray film and advanced digital technology.
The giant camera captures an enormous amount of detail, but objects and people slide in and out of focus; exposures are long; snapshots and action photography are impossible; hallucinatory clarity and detail melt into hazy softness. The equipment is heavy and cumbersome: every step has to be planned and considered, leading to an awareness of what can—and cannot—be photographed. How can you convey the feel of the wind, the sound of birds, the smell of rotting leaves? A sense of time and movement is present in all the images, and of the interaction of people with the environment.
