Mylar Photographic Technique

These images were created by taking photographs of distorted reflections in mylar. The original slide was projected on a wall near the floor and a large sheet of metallic mylar was laid on the floor. The reflected image in the mylar was photographed at f22 using Fuji Sensia 35mm slide film.

  • Q: Was it really hot enough in London to melt the phone booth?
