The artist behind this series of ethereal, experimental photographs describes herself as a digital and analogue photographer with a huge love for alternative printing processes and all other avantgarde mixed media techniques. We’re glad Eni Turkeshi’s approaches her photography in such a way because the results are beautiful, haunting images.
The project, ‘We’re Accidents Waiting to Happen’ is a mixture of drawing and photography. But, it’s difficult to separate the two and we like how seamlessly blended they are. The soft colours and sharp edges make them look quite crystalline, or like organic growths.
“My main medium is photography but I love to try other art mediums as well, all the time. I do this because I love trying new things but also because I love to alternate and blend my expressions in photography. Photography-wise, I work both in analogue and digital mediums. I use a Canon 40D and a broken lens Canon Ixus 6.0 which does some weird effects after the lens accident. As per analogue, I own a Canon 500 n, lomo Smena 8M, Minolta and one hand-made pinhole camera. I want to create a darkroom of mine someday soon if possible.”
“I mostly like to alternate my photographic works in the darkroom, where the alchemy is touchable, but I also use Photoshop in a minimal way to enhance some of the basic elements such as colors, lights, contrasts.”
