Instax Fuji mosaic

Alberto Orrù professional photographer

My project, Fuji  INSTAX mosaic, was born out of my need to create something different from the usual digital photography.  We take every day millions of photographs, but most of these are usually not printed. This, in my opinion, is causing a general devaluation of photography. Today everyone thinks they are a photographer, based on the fact that a nice and perfect photo is enough to be a photographer. However, the world is full of perfect photographs, but finding photos that are able to communicate something is becoming increasingly rare.

So, I came up with this idea to bring together the digital and the analogue world, creating a mosaic with dozens of photos of the same subject that, together, give birth to a new unique image.

“Not knowing how to paint, photography gave me the chance to express my thoughts”.

The problem and the advantage of digital photography is the ability to reproduce a photo an infinite number of times, that is why my technique includes three main steps: taking photos, printing them and destroying them. All this happens within a few minutes.  In fact, once the photos are printed, I break the SD card  containing them, so as to avoid a second copy. This way, photography regains its value, becoming unique and unrepeatable.

For this project, I definitely needed to choose Fuji film, which is the only camera manufacturer offering both instantaneous analogue printing with small and portable SP printers and digital cameras supporting the new technological upgrades. For this project I was inspired mainly by cubists like Picasso and Braque, and Dadaists, such as Maurizio Galimberti and David Hockney.

Over the years, for my projects, I have used different cameras and printers, whose list is shown below.

Fuji X T20 – Fuji X T10 – Fuji X30 – Fuji X T1 – Instax mini – Instax Sp1 Printer – Instax Sp2 Printer
