Filmswap Stockholm – Bangkok
A couple of months ago, my dear friend from Lomography, Pui from Bangkok, asked me if I wanted to do a filmswap with him. And of course I wanted that! He is a very talanted photographer, and he is a true master of doubles, so I was happy do to that!
We agreed to use Kodak EBX Elitechrome 100 ISO (set to 200, though double exposed), and to crossprocess it in C41. So I photographed my film here in Stockholm, and Pui photographed his film in Bangkok, then we switched, I sent my film to him, he reloaded it and photographed the second layer in Bangkok, and vice versa with the other film.
This, to do a film swap is very thrilling, you’ll have no idea what to expect! It all comes as a surprise when the film is developed. It can be difficult to scan and to cut the filmstrips though the frames most often is overlapped, but that just makes the whole thing even more fascinating.
And we both are proud of the outcome of these two films.
So here comes, with gratitude to Pui, for this great opportunity, some of our common favorite images from the two rolls of film.
And don’t forget to visit Pui’s LomoHome and have a look at his stunning images!
Enjoy, and be inspired!
These are awesome!! I’ve tried to do this with my Diana Mini, but they were not nearly as nice 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
I have Pui to thank for a lot of this great images, but I can just say; try it again, you’ll never know, and it is great fun!
These go to some strange places 🙂
Yes indeed, it’s part of the fun, you’ll never know what to expect.
Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comment!
This is fantastic. The different themes of the photos and how they blend together. Great collaboration!
Thank you very much for your visit and kind words!
Yes, this thing with filmswaps definitely makes me wanna do it again, try different things, different films. It is so very fun!
Mind-blowing! Very successful co-op!
Thank you very much, I really appreciate your kind words!
these doubles are amazing Marie! Great project with Pui 🙂
Thank you ever so much dear Grazie!
Yes, and it was really really fun to! 🙂
Have a wonderful week!
Superb, I love it. Speacily 2 and 6, well done both of you.
THANK you!!! 🙂
Stunning and what a brilliant collaboration
Thank you very much for your kind words, most appreciated!
wow! amazing photos!
Pfew! This is so great! What an exciting idea and the result is magnificent. Never heard of this swapping. I think for both photographers the outcome is a bit like expecting a baby :-)) (hope you don’t mind the comparison). You know a photograph will come out of it, but you don’t know how it will look like in the end. It’s an adventure!
My favorites? nr 2 & 9 (look like scenes from a sf movie); nr 4 (deliciously romantic); nr 8 (the color combo is just fabulous!)
Have a nice day! And keep surprising us 😉
Thank you very much Marleen!
Yes, it is a wonderful thrilling feeling not to know what the outcome will be, it is good for the creative mind!
Have a wonderful creative weekend! 🙂

I remember the good old days when we didn’t have the digi-cam. Sometimes, by accident, some pics used to come with this effect [didn’t know about film-swap until seconds ago :$ ] and I always thought it was a *MIRACLE*
wonderful indeed. *Like* it heaps!
Thank you very much for visiting and for your kind comment, most appreciated!
But hey, good old days is still here, and new good days to come too, film is still an artistic choise! 😉
Awesome pictures!!! They are well composed for double exposure. =D
Thank you very much!

BRAVO!!! Yes, that’s it! Inspired! Thank you!
Your kind comment makes me happy and proud!
Awesome. How did you create these double images? 🙂
Ahhh film swap! 😉
I’m learning a lot here and finding inspiration too.
Thank you very much Steve!
Doing a filmswap is one of the funniest things photographically I’ve ever done! So inpredictable and creative, some photos is real crap and some is wonderful beyond imagination……
You should take a look at Pui’s site, it s very inspiring.
I did. She is a fun talented person. I will visit regularly with my Lomography account where I haven’t uploaded pictures yet.
