Best Before End


All of his books were unique and interesting, but especially Best Before End was outstanding. I have never seen photographs like that, and it was shocked to me since the pictures were beautiful. His works were artistic and made me consider a possibility of photos. Not only capture a moment, but photographs can also be beautiful art material.

"The colour negative films were part processed and soaked in energy drink, which caused image shifts and disruptions and softened the film emulsion. The softening allowed for manual stretching, moving, tearing and distortion of the layers of film emulsion to take place, and further manual shifts were added with a soft brush whilst the emulsion was still pliable(DONLON BOOKS)."
