Here's more images from my Metamorphosis series. I only now realized how few of the images I've published, though I've had these ready since August. Sadly, I haven't been able to do any new ones since I came in Istanbul, because my scanner is in Helsinki, but that will change. In less than two weeks I'm going to Helsinki for a short visit, and that means that I can also take the scanner with me and finally continue this series in here. I'm already looking forward to that, as I have plenty of new ideas in mind. One of the things I want to try, is to create short scanography animations. In the end of this post you can see the first sketch of this idea; a simple gif animation that I made just to see how it could work.

Lately I've been very much into this process of manipulating my photos by re-shooting them with a smartphone from DSLR's back screen. Somehow I really like the digital texture that it brings out and I'm also fascinated by the possibility of distorting the perspective of the original image. I don't know yet where this is taking me, but I enjoy the process. It's nice to repeat and variate, and try move further away from the documentary aspect of photography.
