Slide Squared

A personal project consisting of a collection of found slides, overlapped and scanned together to create one image.

Searching through found photographs from eras long gone provides the unique privilege of being a voyeur to strangers’ memories. It evokes such sweet nostalgia as I imagine the who, where, when and why these photographs were taken. I am transported back to a simpler time — one when people were free from looking at their phones or documenting excessive details of their day. When taking photographs was a more cautious and considered experience, primarily taken with the intention of providing the photographer with a memory of the moment. When photographs weren’t on display for likes or attention. When there were 36 shots or less per roll, so you had to be particular.


Inspired by that nostalgia, I sift through thousands of collected slides, overlaying pairs to create an imaginary world that never existed — a fantasy of two past lives coming together in unexpected ways. The combinations are then scanned together to create the images you see here.
