Crack The Code with makeyuu

What's you patience like? How long are you willing to wait for an unpredictable, yet stunning result. Makeyuu let's us in on the secret behind this unique shot.

My name is Marcus. I have been into the analogue world of photography since around 2005. The photo above is the result of an experiment I did years ago. It usually takes me ages to process rolls and then even longer to scan the negatives so to be honest, I usually forget what I did to the roll!

I think I put this roll in a bag of rice+water to rot for a year or something like that. As you can see, the emulsion was kind of eaten away and most parts of the roll were totally destroyed from the decay.

I like the effect and how the colours turned out. I also think it looks a bit like an orchid I have in my room!
