The Wasted Films project

For his Wasted Films project Mads Madison upcycles bits and pieces of photography declared ‘trash’ beforehand. By deconstruction, the original message is distorted and its meaning shifted. It leads to a multiverse of interpretational facets and fragements, leaving the audience orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts.  Hemanipulates the viewer, he creates confusion, setting his audience on a wrong track or luring it in circles. This makes his works touchingly beautiful – and painfully surreal.

What others say

"Like releasing a voice within, Mads explores the norm, taking it on a journey to his imagination. And it's a wonderful place to be."
"An unusual artist."
Polaroid of the day
"He is among the most open-minded film artists I am aware of. He’s not just a photographer…more of an alchemist. Or maybe a damn good b-movie crazy scientist."
Nils Karlson
"Wasted Films does not sound like something worth to pay attention to, only seemingly!"
Noah Zyla
The Polavoid
“His images take the idea of chance and coincidence, already especially prominent in film photography, to a whole new level. While they seem strangely odd at the beginning, they reach much deep under the surface and expose the viewer to subliminal notice rather than obvious statements. There is no distinct content in them, they moreover seem like a painting and not like photographs anymore.”
Tim Heubeck
“Though he just began his instant film journey a  little over a year ago [2016], he is already making huge impressions on the community.“
Michael Behlen
Analog Forever Zine
