I’m currently doing some work on my archive, and I’m unearthing a lot of images I shot on film, scanned in and forgot about. There are a few I really want to put here, partly because I feel like it’s a pity that they should just sit in silence. So for the next few days I’ll be posting random scans from lots of different places and projects, which I hope you’ll enjoy. However there is also a broader reason for this sudden revealing- I was talking to a creative director at an advertising agency the other day and he was really interested in my film images.
He wanted to know not just how, but why I still shot images on an ancient camera using out-dated technology. My only answer was “it gives better results” (which is in itself deeply subjective- for some jobs you’d be an idiot not to use digital), so I’d be interested to hear from anybody who is shooting digital commercially and film privately. Please get in touch and I’ll try to feature some of your work in the coming weeks. Here’s the first shot of many:
