Negatives Coated in Gasoline Produce Intriguing Photos

Fox River Derivatives is a series commenting on consumption and clean water scarcity by Chicago-based photographer Peter Hoffman. Traveling by bike up and down the Fox River, Hoffman shot the photos on medium format film, after which he spray-coated the negatives and the flat surface beneath them with gasoline. He then threw a lit match onto the puddle of gasoline that the negative strip lie in, dousing them with water—fingers crossed—before the negative was too obliterated. It was a trial and error process, mostly error, he says.
