Zara in Wonderland is a series of portraits of my friend Zara. I shot this set of her in Montreal when she was in town for a weekend on the roof of my old house back in 2011. She’s so graceful as she jumps, its almost like she’s hovering in the sky. We only manged to get a few photos taken because the business downstairs could hear us jumping on the roof and came up and yelled at us. lol. It was really funny, we hadn’t even thought of that. It was a great day and its so good to see her when she’s in town.  The quality isn’t the greatest but I love the movement and the spirit in them. Let me know if you like my Zara in Wonderland series, for previous sets, check out here, here, and here!

Feel like I’m caught inside that little space underneath your heart and the concrete.

vic mella citizen erased photography 6 citizen erased photography 5 citizen erased photography 4My mister, Victor is the model for this series of photos, he wanted some photos for his DJ website (here)

These shots were taken a few weeks ago in one of our favourtie places in Montreal, the sculpture garden behind the Canadian Centre of Artitechture. We were having fun on Free Museum Day  despite the rain and manged to visit 3 different museums total which was a lot of fun. One of things I love most about Montreal is the culture and the apperication of art and days were I get to spend enjoying it are the best.

I recently went through all my current Citizen Erased masks and toke a photo of front and back of each of them. It was really fun, and I’m thinking that I will start making some more soon. A few of them are broken a bit from being put in boxes so much in the last few years when I moved so I do need to repair a few of them as well. I really cannot wait to find a place to put them in my new house. It always takes me awhile to decide where they look best and try different ways to showcase them. Hope you enjoy them, I love making mixed media projects.

Lomography Wednesday

Posted by Citizen Erased in Black & White Photography, Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure, Film, Lomography Wednesday, Toy Camera | Leave a comment

Diana F+ (9)My first try at the Diana F+ cameras after years of being a Holga girl! I developed these myself as well, first time doing 120 mm film (I did one roll before this one, so technically it was number 2). So many things went wrong with this film I’m having trouble deciding if I like them or not. The guy who I bought the camera from put black tape on the inside of the camera where the film counter is and I didn’t figure it out until I had loaded the film and kept on winding and never seeing the film counter advance. So I had advance the film all the way to the end and then reload it. And last week when I was developing it I made a mistake on my calculations for the fixer and added extra water diluting it incorrect. Plus I’ve never used Kodak 120mm film before, I’m so use to Lomography’s re-branded film and the contrast you achieve with that. So lets just say I cannot tell if this is what end results normally look like.  My first impressions are though that I love my Holga and I love the results I get with it (I haven’t developed my own Holga film yet) and I’m on the fence with Diana F. So we’ll see, definitely it deserve another roll of film to try, and hopefully things will go smoother. lol.

Vintage Tuesday

kodakdualflex (3), kodak dualflex, citizen erased photographyMy Kodak Dualflex is turning into my favourite vintage cameras, its so fun to take around and see the world through the viewfinder. Even in between photos I like to just walk around looking through it waiting a perfect moment. I’ve been trying to figure out how you could possible take video as well through the viewfinder. These are from a walk I toke a view weeks ago around my neighborhood, I already showed my colored shots two weeks ago (here). I love how the shots are a mixture of old and new, it adds a great element since the old buildings and churches do not look out of place at all with the black and white, and the effect of the vintage lens. Its really when you see the cars and more modern buildings that it feels out of place.

Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil, See no Evil.

Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil is a set of photos taken back in 2009 when I lived in Vancouver of my friend and room-mate at the time Sarah. She was one of the first people who let me make a mask of her face and posed specifically for the mask project (half of them are made with photos I’ve taken but not with the intention of making a mask). Her mask turned out far more surreal then I had expecting and I love the extra eyes. After I made the mask she posed wearing it and I love the results. She just so beautiful, it’s a shame in most of these photos her face is covered. I think my list of people I want to do more photo shoots with is getting super long. I am going back to Vancouver this summer so who knows.

holga, citizen erased, citizen erased photographyEl Paso, Texas

Looking at these brings back lots of memories from my trip around the  west coast of America…back in 2009 I spent two weeks touring the States on a the various Greyhound buses between 10 different States, taking Holga photos as I went. This was one of my longest stops, and on one of my days there I climbed part of the Franklin Mountains range! This guy is located in the middle of El Paso and towers around the whole city, it toke me little over 2 hours to climb. It was wonderful, and the view was breath taking. In most of these photos you can see both El Paso and Mexico and from up on the mountain there was no difference between them. Kind of makes you wonder why they were dumb enough to think that building a wall between the two countries would do anything.   I really felt at home in El Paso.

Self-Portrait Sunday – 1 Year Ago!

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure, Self-Portrait Sunday | Leave a comment

citizenerased I was just thinking today about what was happening in my life in April last year. For one it was sunny, and I had just gotten my facial piercings put in (I cant believe I’ve had these guys for a whole year – I still love them so much), and I had apple colored hair and bangs! So much has changed but still I feel like the same person. I’m actually dying my hair this color again next week, I miss the green. I decided to add a silly one of me trying to do a double exposure. The shots all turned out blurry but I still like this one, I look so serious though!
Maybe I can do a year ago post in April every year, that’d be fun.

Self-Portrait Sunday

citizenerased, citizen erased, citizen erased photography citizenerased, citizen erased, citizen erased photographyAwww I’ve been really missing this old haircut of mine, maybe I’ll get bangs again (they are starting to grow out and still in that inbetween stage where either you deal with them being ‘eh’  so cut them again). Light blue and pink are always my favourite colors but they are very hard to do. My hair needs to be dyed again, this time half green and blue, I am thinking about doing it next week!! I cannot wait to start taking more new self-portraits but going down memory lane is always fun.

Most of them are from a walk downtown with my friend, Ana and some taken at my work place in New Westminster. I really love Holga square photos, the colors are so vibrant and as you can tell I love anything double exposed. I really want to take more with my Holga here in Montreal. It nice capturing random moments and the results are always rewarding for me. Lomography Wednesday is my favourite day of the week on my blog :)
