Handplanes make you feel like an underwater torpedo. It brings you back to the early days of surfing or even to your first surf sessions when you were just a kid using your own body as the only sliding surface.

TWICE is a double exposure personal project entirely shot on a Hasselblad 503CX camera. Completely based on the DIY concept, goes from the capture of the photo in analogue black and white film, followed by dev / scan at home and printed in high quality archival paper. The photos were framed in handcrafted recycled wood frames. Photos are unique, existing only 1 version of each.
