andrew j millar uses instant film to achieve effects by manipulating the emulsion during the developing process, separating the image emulsion from the film base, double exposing the film, overlaying the transparencies or by varying the temperature and the developing time.
this technique enhances the surreal, dreamlike mood of the image and inspires us to question what is real.
Andrew Millar lives in Whitechapel, East London and uses a combination of instant film, gold & silver leaf and paint to create delicately detailed collage pieces that capture a haunting mix of reality and fantasy.
