DAVID ELALOUF A.K.A DUDIZM
In my younger years, I started using disposable cameras, attracted by their lightness and ease of use in order to capture my vision of the world. The intensive use of these devices led me to master a strong instinctive technique and a personal sense of composition and framing. Also, aiming from the hip was already a necessity in the process of taking pictures.
20 years later, the fervor found a second wind when i discovered Lomography*, its philosophy and the whole range of analog devices it offers. In the mid-2000, using these instruments that allow all sorts of experiments, i explored new paths in my work.
My photographic style is nourished by light wobbly, saturated colors and intense contrasts. Sometimes, blurring the tracks by multiplying exposures, and consequently the reading levels of the image.
The results you see here are only the fruit of a combination of analog cameras, old expired slide films (from the 60′ to early 2000) and black and white.
No digital manipulations
