Chromatic Aberration

Chromatic Aberration

This film pays homage to the medium of colour film.
Working with George Eastman House, Satz handpicked
early 1920s colour film footage – mainly test shots of
George Eastman’s family members and Hollywood
stars of the time – which exposes chromatic distortions
and misalignments. Satz has reworked the footage
using extreme close-ups and magnification, especially
of the eyes.
