Miles Brokenshire experiments with 4x5 with astounding results
Miles Brokenshire didn't use specialty film for these shots. He used a variety of methods, including pushing/pulling and intentional light leaks to get these effects. He is inspired by the environment around him and captures it exquisitely in this series of photos.

ALTER/ANALOG: What inspires you?
MB: We never quite realize it, but every structure we’ve casted our human existence into has been a mass variety of canvas option. Whether it’s stone, tree, or sand, anything that matches it’s marvel. When it reveals itself in nature it often becomes unnoticed, but in fact, it’s a dancer you’ve yearned to capture and experience. Knowing that I can absorb myself into an environment and feel the splendour if it all is what truly inspires me.
ALTER/ANALOG: How long have you shot film?
MB: I’ve shot film since I was 14. I knew it’s nature then, but not it’s full potential. But an eagerness to engage in further development further ensued.
ALTER/ANALOG: What is it that you like about alternative processes?
MB: My love affair with alternative processes started with liquid emulsion and Polaroid transfers.
ALTER/ANALOG: You shoot 4x5. Amazing! What camera do you shoot on?
MB: The 4x5 Graflex Press Camera is a marvel that I’ve had for a great time. It’s the most effective apparatus I’ve utilized.
