Ahead of my return to Berlin this September I wanted to post a behind the scenes/comparison photograph from Subterraneans: a series of photographs I've been working on that relate to Berlin's legacy of Second World War-era unexploded ordnance. I have been photographing trees growing on or near the city's former bombsites because their shapes suggest not only past explosions but – due to time-delay fuses – explosions potentially yet to happen. The above photograph is the result of over one hundred exposures, taken over the course of a day and layered in-camera onto single negative. The top photograph I took with my iPhone in order to geotag the location.
