24 unique photographs of one piece of plain, white paper. You can't cut or tear the paper, but can crumple, roll, or fold it. Must be shot on a white background with spotlights + a soft light. Only the paper is allowed to be in the image but you can create different shadows and change the lighting.
Next, colour gels and glass can be used to create an effect.

Bill Jacobson Inspired by the early twentieth-century, Jacobson creates blurred, obscured photographs of people in an attempt to portray dreams, memories, and how the mind only remembers the small details.
Erwin Blumenfeld During a thirty-five year long career Blumenfeld experimented widely with black and white portraits, nudes, celebrity portraiture, advertising campaigns and most importantly, his fashion photography. He's used solarization, multiple exposures, and photomontage in his darkroom.
American photographer/painter, worked in the 1940's & 1950's
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Ayer currently resides in L.A. He began taking photos in 2007 and was originally drawn to space, shapes, and abstract compositions. The women of his photographs have a solitary and nostalgic quality to them reminiscent of a melancholy dream. His images are often digitally manipulated with light leaks, double exposures, and solar flares for effect.
In his 'Time Travel' project, Ayer used projection to create unique and beautiful images.
I used a picture of the galaxy to show how we dream and think large.
This image was showing how the media passes through us but we remain insignificant.

Chosen strand - Projection photography & Double exposure I've chosen to further deveop my projection photography because I feel there's more I can explore with the strand. Double exposure has similarites to projection photograpy but creates different effects. I feel with double exposure you have more control over the image, but projection can make a stronger image because it's not making a layer undrneath less pronounced.

I put my camera on manual focus so that i could get out of focus images of the lights, to portray an atmosphere. I also used a longer shutter speed for some so that I could get a trail of light with the way I moved the camera. The red/white/blue images are of an out of focus christmas tree, I changed the aperture and ISO so that you couldn't see the christmas tree behind it. The second set of lights are from home and were on the wall. When I was creating the trails, however, it was much harder to make the background darker, because the light filled most of the image.
- Double exposure
After doing some double exposure edits,I moved on to projection.
Contact sheet 2
I projected the the same images i took earlier of the lights, so that it could seem like she was in the image.
- Projection photography
After projecting the images, I enhanced the images by changing the saturation and sharpness.
I chose these 4 images because they seemed the most striking and atmospheric to me.
