Artist: Nico Morando
Title: Eclipse of the Self
Medium: Film Photography – Kodak Portra 400, Olympus OM-10
Grade: 10th
School: Camplindo High School
Teacher: Collette Sweeney



This piece was created in Lisbon, Portugal. It was shot on an Olympus OM-10 film camera using Kodak Portra 400. This film was used because of the beautiful halation that it creates when shooting into the light. The model was situated with light in the background and covered his face to create a sense of collectivism, away from individual focus, and mystery. A sense for the viewer to long to have the face revealed.
