A while ago, I played around with overlapping multiple exposures on a single roll of film. I found it to be an exceptionally evocative means of documenting travel. There is an inherent narrative to this process that speaks to the experience of traveling in general; new sights and novel acts swirl together. And, as with our memories, time is abstracted, in this case compressed and stretched. This same process could be applied to a longer period. What would a year look like on a single roll, what about a lifetime?

Here are a couple such images from our recent trip to South America. Can you see time folded between the fine-lined seams?
