Leichhardt Sunset x Current Energies AE-1 / Fujifilm 400 double exposure

Had a film mishap yesterday which resulted in this fun accident.

First exposure taken somewhere in a neighbourhood street in Leichhardt.

Second exposure is from the absolutely brilliant mini-festival Current Energies, an International Women's Day celebration curated by Mara Schwerdtfeger. Whole lineup was phenomenal. Go check out the artists: Joyce Hinterding, (can't find a link for Szem), Verna Bloom, Holly Conner / ilex, Del Lumanta, Jacqui O'Reilly. Shouts to the incredible Church St Studios for hosting.
