Film Swap: Collaborative Camera Work at Forward Thinking Museum

A photograph that Jesús Joglar and I made in a film swap collaboration, "In the arboreal castle," is included in the exhibit, "Film Swap: Collaborative Camera Work" at the Forward Thinking Museum, a virtual space for contemporary photography.

Curator Peter Fahrni explains the process of film swap in his introduction, and offers intriguing comments about the meaning of this form of collaboration. Spanning three online galleries, this exhibit shows the often beautiful and surreal imagery that can result.


  1. Great stuff here and also in the exhibit.

  2. Wish I could see the exhibit. A number of years ago I swapped a 35mm roll with a guy from Dublin (we both shot on the street, mine were in Baltimore) and the juxtaposition of the images were quite interesting.

    1. Thanks so much for your comment, George! The exhibit is only online, so unless you're having difficulty with your browser, you can see it as well as anyone can. Isn't it fascinating what results from these collaborations?
