Sometimes, going back doesn’t always mean counter progressive. This is what Doctor Popular showed in his move to pursuing film as medium for his photography.
We all know that digital is sort of making quite an impact with the way we live our lives. Everything just seems digital and instant but there are just some things that are better off the analogue way. *Doc Pop* started his thing with photography by using an iPhone as his first camera but soon found out the joys of shooting analogue. We’re glad he stumbled upon his film camera on a yard sale. Sometimes it’s the treasures that find us
In his experiment *Glitch Double Exposures*, he used a film camera to shoot multiple exposure shots that combined digital and analogue into one unique set of photos. He purposely messed up some images on his computer by using a text editor and created glitches and used those for first exposures. After getting his first exposures on film, he then went to town for a photowalk and came back with gems.
The rewind feature on his analogue camera surely did its part. Out of curiosity, Doc Pop produced unique photos that are glitch in every which way, digital or analogue-wise. For this fun experiment, he used a Lomomography Color ISO 400 film and was very much contented with the results that he intends to do the same experiment with his LC-Wide. Now talk about a great kind of rewind.

His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is. Neither are his views on photography straitlaced, as this exciting interview with Lomography proves.
