Julie Guertin delves into childhood
"I'm Julie, a BS student in cognitive neuroscience and a photographer living in Montreal, Canada. I work on both 35mm and 120mm film. I like to experiment with color, blur, and multiple exposures to explore the fascinating world of childhood."
ALTER/ANALOG: How were these images created?
JG: All were shot on presoaked film. I usually shoot the roll first and soak it afterward. For these images, I did the opposite: soak first and shoot after letting the rolls dry. I also use intentional blur and multiple exposures to give my pictures a dreamy feel.
ALTER/ANALOG: What inspires you?
JG: I draw my inspiration from multiple sources: nature, abstract painting, travel… but the main one is children, and everything related to childhood (colors, emotions, drawings…)
ALTER/ANALOG: How did you get interested in alternative processing?
JG: Alternative processing is how I can best express my creativity. I love it because I can create my own set of rules. Being an introvert, experimenting with film is the vehicle I've found to be heard and fight the dark areas of my soul.
ALTER/ANALOG: What are you working on next?
JG: I want to experiment with some color infrared film I bought a few months ago. It will be my first time working with this type of film, so I'm really excited about this project.
