(1976) Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Chris Kovacs is an award winning photographer best known for his multiple exposure black-and-white photography. Chris is fascinated with science, particularly with quantum mechanics and the possibility of a multiverse, or multiple, parallel universes, which also sets the stage for his style of photographic works. Chris is also interested in exploring dreams, the subconscious mind and memory. Chris’ photography focuses primarily on scenes containing elements of architecture and people. Chris captures “in camera” multiple-exposures of the same scene from different angles and later combines several multiple-exposure photographs together to form a single image. When asked about his photographic style Chris responds “It’s Multiplexualization.” Multiplexualization is a term Chris has coined. It is the digital layering of many different multiple-exposure photographs to form a single image which deliberately depicts a dreamlike quality. Multiplex, in this case, means: many elements in a complex relationship, where ualization represents the single, final image–the deliberate dreamlike visual. All of the images featured on this website were taken with an iPhone 5s. Chris resides in Vancouver, BC, Canada with his wife and two sons.
Ball of Light™ | by Denis Smith.
…. “Light Painting” became a way for me to to push the photographic boundaries. The creation of the Ball of Light project then became a way for me to regularly get out into nature which provided a balance to the rest of my life. I now look back on the past couple of years and realise that the Ball of Light not only helped me make a huge and sustainable change in my own life, but I have inspired others all over the world to do the same. I love that.
The Ball of Light is created in a single exposure by swinging lights around. There is no “Photoshop” here at all. It is super challenging, and certainly adds a new dimension to long exposure photography….
BBC News – Did the Lomo camera save film photography?
The little camera was the Lomo LC-A – Lomo Kompact Automat, built in Soviet-era Leningrad by Leningrad Optics and Mechanics Association (Lomo) – and very soon a craze was born. It was an analogue Instagram in the days before digital photography. This Lomo craze may have ended up helping save film photography from an untimely end. In 1992, the students set up Lomographic Society International, exhibiting shots taken on unwanted Lomos they had bought up from all over Eastern Europe. Then, in the mid-90s, having exhausted the supply of left-over Lomos gathering dust in Budapest, Bucharest or East Berlin, they went to the camera’s manufacturers – still making optics in St Petersburg – and persuaded them to restart production. The negotiations were helped along by the support of the city’s then deputy mayor, Vladimir Putin. On Thursday 22 November, Lomography is celebrating its 20th anniversary, by starting a series of parties in some of its 36 stores around the world

The unique charm of analog photographs connected with the original handcraft of photography fascinates me. After I got my first analog camera in summer of 2010 I started shooting more and more. This growing portfolio is the result of my passion. All of these photographs are captured on film, self developed and without any computer manipulation.
I hope you‘ll enjoy it.
