inspiration monthly makers: imprint

So the first inspirational word of Monthly Makers this year is imprint/impression or avtryck in Swedish! (Don’t know what Monthly Makers is? Read all about it here!) It’s an exciting word that opens up for a lot of different interpretations! You can make prints using stuff, convey a story about something that has made an impression on you or just do something that ~feels~ like “imprint”. Like you can also make stuff about the way you make an imprint on your surroundings, how your surroundings make an imprint on you and so on. It’s a perfect month to discuss environmental footprints and body image, for example!

Personally I’m thinking that every kind of photograph is some kind of imprint/impression! Just click the pictures to see more and go to the original posts.

There’s something about the double exposure effect (although this is not quite a double exposure, but never mind) that feels very imprint-y to me. Like an exposure making an imprint on another.

And then these with the mirrored effect – you kind of make an imprint on a mirror. It’s a bit of a stretch, but still!

Like the top part imprints on the bottom part. You get me, right? I’m not crazy.

    Så himla vackert och trolskt! Jag tycker David Bowie borde haft någon av dina bilder som omslag på sin senaste skiva – de hade passat perfekt!

    Alltså damn vilken jävla portfolio! Du kan ju bara skicka in det här inlägget till lite museum och stipendieformer så är saken biff. Och SÅ bra påminnelse om vad avtryck kan vara som inte känns så självklart!!! Ser så mycket fram emot ditt bidrag :)
