Pentimento - Jacob Felländer

In his Pentimento series Swedish photographer Jacob Felländer uses ancient, rebuilt analogue cameras to multiexpose his negatives while simultaneously winding the film forward throughout the frame; allowing for time, space and perspective to drift. Paint and charcoal is applied for the first time in this body of work, highlighting the shapes and forms Felländer sees in the underlying exposures and bringing them to the surface; thus pentimento. He cites Turner, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Anselm Kiefer and Robert Frank as influences.
