Once Around the Ring by Jackson Kirchner
My project “Once Round The Ring” details various scenes around the entire Ring Road in Iceland and beyond. The photographs in this all analog series represent the new (for me) landscape from many contrasting perspectives; since the weather in Iceland changes sporadically, the large range of film stocks included in the project helps accurately capture the dynamic environment on the island.
With a focus on minimalism and preserving the vast tonality of the landscape, the series showcases the first signs of Spring on emulsions such as Ektar 100, Lomochrome Purple 400, Velvia 50, Cinestill 50D, and Aerochrome. The project holds a lot of significance to me since it immortalizes my first glimpse at lands outside the Americas during the same time I made the switch to shoot all film.
