Second moon

3 decisive moments during the making of a picture of the moon.

It questions the possibility of capturing a poetic moment with limited technical equipment. 

 

The moon, visible against a clear blue sky, was captured with an Olympus Penn, 35 mm. 

However, the negatives (18-24 mm) did not show any appearance of the moon. This observation would become the final work. 

But printing this image on a manual colour device brought the ultimate answer: the moon did appear and even in duplicate.
