I recently came across the work of Italian photographer Manuel Cafini over on Facebook, and I was instantly blown away. His Chronophotography project particularly intrigued me, as it’s a look I’ve attempted and failed to create myself a number of times.
Chronophotography is defined as “an antique photographic technique from the Victorian era (beginning about 1867-68), which captures movement in several frames of print. These prints can be subsequently arranged either like animation cels or layered in a single frame.”
Manuel has updated the basic principles and brought it to the present day. So, we reached out and contacted Manual to get some insight into his process.
