Time Travel — Body Art Projection by Davis Ayer

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Davis Ayer is a fashion photographer now based in California who is best known for his colorful vintage looking photographs. The young photographer, who started taking pictures in 2007, will often add paint strokes, colour filters, transparency and double exposure to create sensual and evocative images. In an interview with Lomography, Ayer explains why he prefers to shoot analogue,"I have no problems with chopping up pictures and manipulating digital images, but I have more respect for film... Film just looks better to me. Film is so much more dynamic. I think that analogue makes you a better photographer. Shooting film forces you to be patient, and really learn what you want in the frame." In this series entitled "Time Travel," vintage landscape photos are projected onto naked female bodies.
