Art & Adventure with PJ Ortiz Luis

The online portfolio of Pacifico "PJ" Ortiz Luis, a storyteller utilizing different mediums of art including film photography, dance, and performance poetry.


this is my first of self developed film in e-6 chemistry.   i shot this on a Kodak Tourist that is built for 620 film [which is no longer produced], so i rolled modern film onto old reels to fit inside the camera.  the light leaks are the result of my inarticulate fingers.  the frames that this camera shoots are HUGE, hence why i only get 8 shots per roll.  [very cost ineffective as well haha]

after i finish these chemicals, i think i'll lay off self-developing color film for a while...or at least i can figure out a good system to maintain temperatures.  it's a real labor to do all this by hand. :X
