This photo was taken on one of Alexander’s walks through nature. During these walks he carries little other than a large format wood camera with 9cm x 12cm film, along with twelve film holders, each carrying just one negative. Every shot must be considered carefully.

Author: Running through the forest, the trees are upright, they turn at sharp right angles away from the surface, it swings nicely. Photography. How an archaic machine teaches me to slow down. A small ritual: to wander into a place, stick my head under black velvet and watch a small projection of reality on the glass, flipped upsidedown and backwards. Perhaps I don’t even need to take a picture, but that’s another question entirely. Just twelve shots per day and then it’s dark again: mixing, rinsing, wetting, drying… And finding out how much of this fascinating reality I was actually able to catch.

Todd: Alex used his view camera to twist the focal plane of this photograph quite drastically, creating dynamic tension. Like many photographs that use camera movements, the soft focus adds to a mystical atmosphere of the image. But Alex’s choice to use one simple camera movement that makes the plane of focus slice right down the center of the image is what I like about it. This seems narrow band of sharpness cuts its way through the forest like a saw.

Honza: The camera that Alex used to take this photograph (a view camera) makes it possible to change the plane of focus. This can be used for technical photographs (to make completely sharp and squared images) as well as creative shots (to cause unique blurs and distortions). Many photographers who try to use this blur effect, but do so without elegance; these over-exaggerations result in a images that seem free but empty. Sasha use of camera movements creates a sophisticated atmosphere, which is an excellent complement to "his" forest.
