After becoming father separation anxiety to Relander‘s childhood absorbed him into this project.
Now, for three years Relander has been revisiting his childhood environments to “capture” them into his collection. Most environments are from where he grew up, in the countryside in the south of Finland, where his roots still lie. As a container for the environments, Relander chose to use jar bottles produced by the food industry.
All works are intentional double exposures shot in-camera on a DSLR (Nikon D800E)—this project was not created or layered in an external software. Images are not put into physical jars (as is misunderstood sometimes), only blended into one photograph.
Jarred & Displaced is an ongoing project, this is a second installment.
“When I had finished my first installment of Jarred & Displaced, I decided to start experimenting in color” the author said. “First I wanted to continue shooting on film, but I soon realized I am not ready yet to start developing my color film in my studio. The whole follow-up project is shot using my Nikon D800E’s multiple exposure feature. This feature is replicating the old multiple exposure algorithm, this made it easier to switch from analogue to digital”
