17 Jan Dylan Culhane | The Mountain Kingdom
Director; curator; online radio host and magazine editor, Dylan Culhane, indulged another of his occupations, photography, on a trip to Lesotho during December. The result is a photo series taken on 35mm film, and a look at The Mountain Kingdom like we’ve never seen it before.
In a time where making a level adjustment or small exposure tweak in Lightroom or Photoshop is not uncommon for even film photographers, it’s intriguing to learn that these effect-full images are digitally untouched. Being an analogue enthusiast, Dylan created the look with multiple exposures, paint, collage and filters; all in-camera techniques.
While also an avid portrait taker, Dylan is becoming most well known for images like these. He regards the camera as less a tool for documentation and more a ‘magical image-making contraption’. He says, “Over the years my style has evolved to become increasingly meticulous, layering organic and architectural elements upon each other as multiple exposures on celluloid. Most of the time (though not always) I resist the lure of digital manipulation, using in-camera techniques to create surreal images more akin to illustration, painting, or digital design than photography.”
