Each photograph contains 4—6 separate images combined together so that the final photographs are 32in by 82in. The final image size invites the viewer in the space to feel the tone of the photograph. The digital images were taken with a Nikon D3100, while the film images were taken with a Canon AE-1 on 35mm film.
